Bene, individuo ed energia in Iris Murdoch

Abstract : Goodness is the main concept of Iris Murdoch's moral philosophy. This notion is not a projection but a full reality. << Realism >> means that we don't create it. Goodness shouldn't be studied separately, though, but as closely connected to the nature of human being. For us, it is an object of perception and contemplation. Murdoch's notion of Value also softens and makes sense of the dark background of human life, characterised by mortality, suffering, selfishness and pointlessness; a life lacking a transcendent guaranty. Ethics is about transformation of human individual, who comes to see through the veil of illusions; a modification of states of consciousness, a progressive transformation of energy and a purification of personal vision. A spiritual pilgrimage leads the individual from appearances to reality.
