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 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 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 student’s 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
agitated 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 Englishspeaking world and to encourage philosophical discussion on the left. It welcomes any contributions which will
serve these aims.
