A Golden Age for Women in Philosophy?
"It was clear that we were all more interested in understanding this deeply puzzling world than in putting each other down. That was how Elizabeth Anscombe, Philippa Foot, Iris Murdoch, Mary Warnock, and I, in our various ways, all came to think out alternatives to the brash, unreal style of philosophising - based essentially on logical positivism - that was current at the time. And these were the ideas that we later expressed in our own writings."
