Title: Philosophy as Transformation of the Self in Foucault and Murdoch
Tutor: Donatelli, Piergiorgio
Spinelli, Emidio
Trincia, Francesco Saverio
Keywords: Self transformation
Issue Date: 18-Jun-2012
Abstract: Unlike ancient philosophy, for which both ethical reflection and practice were fundamental, for much of modern philosophy "ethics" is a (merely scholarly) sub-discipline. Foucault and Murdoch were two very different twentieth century philosophers who believed philosophy must be reclaimed as self transformation, and drew upon ancient philosophy in their own reconstructions, not as emulation, but as important sources of reflection, and of elaboration of "techniques of the self". The thesis explores their work on this.
