RADICAL PHILOSOPHY GROUP
The Radical Philosophy Group grew out of a convergence of two currents which had
been largely formed by the student movement of the 1960s – on the one hand, discontent,
especially among students, with the sterile and compacent philosophy taught in British
universities and colleges; on the other hand, a revival of interest in the theoretical
work of the left and a recognition of the need to confront the ideology enshrined in
orthodox academic disciplines. The Radical Philosophy Group has always contended that
these two problems can be tackled together – that philosophical inquiry into fundamental
issues must lead to the exposure of conservatism masquerading as formal reason.

Academic philosophy in this countr~ has generally accepted and defended the frame of
reference of the dominant bourgeois culture. This culture is supported and mirrored by
the t!litist isolation, the internal hierarchies and demarcations, of academic institutions. The Radical Phi losophy Group therefore works for refo.rms in courses and
assessments for the enlargement of students’ control over their education, for the
breaking down of barriers between philosophy and other disciplines and between academic
institutions and the outside world.

The Group has held numerous conferences, a~d local groups have been’ formed which have
organised meetings and agitated on local ~sues. Radical, Phil,osophy is the magazine of
the Radical Philosophy Group, and has come out three times a year since January 1972.

It aims to criticise the current state of philosophy in the English-speaking world and
to encourage philosophical discussion on the left,.” It welcomes any contributions which
will serve these aims.
