LETTERS……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… 58
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.

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 English-speaking world and to encourage philosophical discussion on the left. It
welcomes any contributions which will serve these aims.
