She argues that philosophy has focused, mistakenly, on what it is right to do rather than good to be and that only by restoring the notion of 'vision' to moral thinking can this distortion be corrected.

This book collects three papers/lecutres that orginally were conceived/written between 1962 and 1969. When I first started reading Idea of Perfection, I struggled to find a foothold in Murdoch's quick survey of moral philosophy, which she uses as foundation of her argument. A little persistence ...
