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 complacent philosophy taught in British universities and colleges; on
the other hand, a revival of interest in the theoreti~al 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 country has generally accepted and defended the frame of reference of
the dominant bourgeois culture. This culture is supported and mirrored by the elitist isolation, the
internal hierarchies and demarcations, of academic institutions. The Radical Philosophy Group
therefore works for reforms 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, and local groups have been formed, which have organised
meetings ‘and agi ta ted on local issues Radical Philosophy 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.
