We discuss Iris Murdoch’s Under the Net. As both a philosopher and a novelist, Murdoch wanted to exploit the advantages ‘of having a mind on the borders of philosophy, literature, and politics’. True to that end, her first novel, Under the Net, is a comic meditation on everything from the nature of truth to living a moral life.
