Speaker information

Dr Rachael Wiseman, University of Liverpool. I am currently working on an AHRC-funded project, Perception, Action and the Genesis of Everyday Ethics (PAGE). The project, with Dr Clare MacCumhaill (Durham) is a study of the lives and philosophy of 'The Quartet' of women philosophers who met at Oxford during WWII: Anscombe, Philippa Foot, Mary Midgley and Iris Murdoch ( As well as studying the philosophy of four wonderfully creative thinkers we want to understand why there are so few women in philosophy and to work out what we might do about it!
