Most widely held works by A. W Moore
Philosophy as a humanistic discipline by Bernard Williams( file )
19 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,404 libraries worldwide
What can--and what can't--philosophy do? What are its ethical risks--and its possible rewards? How does it differ from science? In Philosophy as a Humanistic Discipline, Bernard Williams addresses these questions and presents a striking vision of philosophy as fundamentally different from science in its aims and methods even though there is still in philosophy "something that counts as getting it right." Written with his distinctive combination of rigor, imagination, depth, and humanism, the book amply demonstrates why Williams was one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. Spa
The infinite by A. W Moore( Book )

Publisher description: This historical study of the infinite covers all its aspects from the mathematical to the mystical. Anyone who has ever pondered the limitlessness of space and time, or the endlessness of numbers, or the perfection of God will recognize the special fascination of the subject. Beginning with an entertaining account of the main paradoxes of the infinite, including those of Zeno, A.W. Moore traces the history of the topic from Aristotle to Kant, Hegel, Cantor, and Wittgenstein

Noble in reason, infinite in faculty themes and variations in Kant's moral and religious philosophy by A. W Moore( Computer File )
12 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 776 libraries worldwide
"Noble in Reason, Infinite in Faculty identifies three Kantian themes - morality, freedom, and religion - and presents variations on each of these themes in turn. Moore concedes that there are difficulties with the Kantian view that morality can be governed by 'pure' reason, but defends a closely related view involving a notion of reason as socially and culturally conditioned. In the course of doing this, Moore considers in detail ideas at the heart of Kant's thought, such as the categorical imperative, free will, evil, hope, eternal life, and God. He also makes creative use of ideas in contemporary philosophy, both within the analytic tradition and outside it, such as 'thick' ethical concepts, forms of life, and 'becoming those that we are'. Throughout the book, a guiding precept is that to be rational is to make sense, and that nothing is of greater value to us than making sense." "Noble in Reason, Infinite in Faculty is essential reading for all those interested in Kant, ethics, and the philosophy of religion."--BOOK JACKET
Meaning and reference ( Book )
13 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
"The aim of this series is to bring together important recent writings in major areas of philosophical inquiry, selected from a variety of sources, mostly periodicals, which may not be conveniently available to the university student or flee general reader. The editor of each volume contributes an introductory essay on the items chosen and on the questions with which they deal. A selective bibliography is appended as a guide to further reading." "This volume presents a selection of the most important writings in the debate on the nature of meaning and reference which started at the end of the nineteenth century with Frege's classic essay 'On Sense and Reference'. This subject lies at the very heart of the philosophy of language."--BOOK JACKET

Part 2 of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Rationalists and British empiricists. The discoveries of Copernicus and Galileo turned science completely upside down, forcing people to examine their place in the world and God's place in science and mathematics. Religious volatility in Europe also prompted fierce theological debate amongst scholars over the true nature of God's existence. In Europe, the Rationalist movement was born. The sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries saw the emergence of continental mathematical and philosophical giants including Rene Descartes, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, Immanuel Kant, and Bendict de Spinoza. Meanwhile in Britain, a philosophical renaissance was taking place. Known as the British empiricists, they included John Locke, David Hume, and Bishop George Berkeley. Discusses why the philosophical schism took place and what each school had to say about the limits of human reason and to what extent we can truly comprehend the world
Western philosophy ( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 31 libraries worldwide
The final part of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Industrial Revolution and Pragmatism. The Industrial Revolution had a deep impact on the direction and questions posed by western philosophy. Technological advancements prompted questions about the role of religion and for the first time, attempts were made to explain the human evolution of western civilization and history. Thinkers including Arthur Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Jean-Paul Sartre began to question the human condition. Philosophy tried to reconcile the mechanistic laws of the universe with human freedom of will and action in a world that was beginning to be perceived as godless. Philosophical debate shifted from whether the eternal world exists, but rather, to how we interpret it. The language we use in everyday life became a focus for the Pragmatists and Ludwig Wittgenstein
