Sophie Grace Chappell interview

3am magazine is a free-to-access site with a constant stream of excellent essays on culture, particularly written culture, including philosophy. It also has an interview with Sophie Grace Chappell  called Glory, beauty, epiphany, imagination: how to do moral philosophy. As well as finding out more about her many highly distinctive takes on philosophy…

‘The phenomenon that I call glory is, roughly speaking, what you get when someone scores a brilliant goal in front of a packed stadium. When I wrote “Glory as an ethical idea” it was because I was struck by the centrality of glory in this sense to our society. But though it is sociologically so central for us, it’s not even on the map for us philosophically.’

…you can learn how she ended up at the Open University and why she values it as an institution.
