Iris Murdoch once observed: 'philosophy is often a matter of finding occasions on which to say the obvious'. What was obvious to Murdoch, and to all those who read her work, is that Good transcends everything - even God. Throughout her distinguished and prolific writing career, she explored questions of good and bad, myth and morality. The framework for Murdoch's questions - and her own conclusions - can be found in the "Sovereignty of Good." The Boston Reviewhailed these essays as 'her most influential pieces of philosophy'.

'One of the very few modern books of philosophy which people outside academic philosophy find really useful.' - Mary Midgely ' ... Murdoch's attack is the fruit of a thorough professional involvement with the school of thought to which she is opposed.' - Anthony Quinton, Sunday Telegraph 'All three essays which make up this book, The Idea of Perfection, On 'God' and 'Good', and The Sovereignty of Good over Other Concepts, are superb.' - The Guardian
