Iris Murdoch: Philosophy by Postcard


Join An Post and In Parenthesis to celebrate Iris Murdoch’s philosophy, literature, and love of letter-writing by participating in an international #SlowPhilosophy exchange: #PhilosophybyPostcard.

Between July and September 2019 you are invited to send a postcard to Iris Murdoch at Blessington Street, Dublin.  100 postcards received will be selected and sent on to 100 waiting philosophers from around the globe. You will receive a reply to your postcard from a philosopher, written on a specially commissioned artist-designed postcard complete with a commemorative Murdoch stamp. Philosophy by Postcard was inspired by the postcard exchange between Elizabeth Anscombe and Sir Anthony Kenny, held in the Collegium Institute archive at University of Philidelphia.

Send your question for a philosopher to:
Iris Murdoch – Blessington Street
An Post
PO Box 1919
Dublin 1
* Freepost is only applicable to mail sent from within Ireland.
It’s Freepost in Ireland to send a postcard to Iris, but you can also collect the stamp!
