Last summer we received over 400 questions on a postcard. We selected 100 postcards and sent each one to a different philosopher around the world.
We have now posted all the answers -- check your mail! If you were lucky enough to get a reply we'd love to see it. Take a photo and share with us on twitter @parenthesis_in #philosophybypostcard. You can read all 100 questions and answers here.
To celebrate the centenary of the birth of Iris Murdoch, An Post are releasing a commemorative stamp of this iconic Dublin-born philosopher and author.
An Post have partnered with In Parenthesis to bring you Philosophy by Postcard, a public philosophy project introducing #slowphilosophy and celebrating Iris Murdoch.
Iris Murdoch was born on Blessington Street, Dublin. Between July and September 2019 we invited you to send a postcard to Iris Murdoch. 100 postcards will receive an individual reply from a philosopher. Their #philosophybypostcard will be on one of our limited edition, artist-designed, cards complete with a beautiful special edition Iris Murdoch stamp.
