First published in 1998, this scope of this volume is limited to an exegetical and critical study of the methods or means by which Moore tried to render answers to philosophical questions and solutions to philosophical puzzles, rather than any discussion of his metaphysical, epistemological, ethical, and religious views. The author suggests that whilst Moore’s views changed over his career, his methodology has remained much more consistent: the distinction between understanding the meaning of an expression of everyday life or of science and knowing what it means in the sense of being able to provide a correct analysis of its understood meaning.

Table of Contents

1. Setting the Stage and Setting Aright. 2. Moore’s Method of Appealing to Ordinary Language. 3. Moore’s Method of Appealing to Common Sense. 4. Moore and Ordinary Meaning. 5. Moore and Analysis. 6. Conclusion.
