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.
