Philosophical reflections on Midgley

Jul 6, 2020

Mary Midgley was a British philosopher. She died at the age of 99, in 2018.
 
I'm contributing to a memorial project on her. The project is titled 'The Biscuit Tin'. When she went to conferences and public debates, Midgley always took her favourite biscuit tin with her, and offered the other participants home made cookies.
 
I wrote a short reflection on what I think Midgley would have said about the current virus.
You can check it out on the website of the project.
