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

Meaning and reference ( Book )
16 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 469 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."--Jacket
Points of view by A. W Moore( Book )
25 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 388 libraries worldwide
"A. W. Moore argues in this bold and ambitious book that it is possible to think about the world 'from no point of view'. He examines this idea, explains its significance, and considers reasons for thinking that such a thing is not possible. In particular, drawing on the work of Kant and Wittgenstein, he considers transcendental idealism. This leads to the heart of his project: a study of ineffability and nonsense. His fundamental idea is that transcendental idealism is nonsense resulting from the attempt to express certain inexpressible insights. This idea is applied to a wide range of fundamental philosophical issues, including the nature of persons, the subject-matter of mathematics, anti-realism, value, and God. Moore's original approach forges unexpected connections between the various questions he addresses." "Points of View is a lucid and lively study of the relation between reality and our representations of it, the upshot of which is a powerful critique of our own finitude."--Jacket
Noble in reason, infinite in faculty : themes and variations in Kant's moral and religious philosophy by A. W Moore( Book )
15 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 350 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."--Jacket
The evolution of modern metaphysics : making sense of things by A. W Moore( Book )
23 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 292 libraries worldwide
This book is concerned with the history of metaphysics since Descartes. Taking as its definition of metaphysics 'the most general attempt to make sense of things', it charts the evolution of this enterprise through various competing conceptions of its possibility, scope and limits. The book is divided into three parts, dealing respectively with the early modern period, the late modern period in the analytic tradition and the late modern period in non-analytic traditions. In its unusually wide range, A.W. Moore's study refutes the tired old cliche that there is some unbridgeable gulf between analytic philosophy and philosophy of other kinds. It also advances its own distinctive and compelling conception of what metaphysics is and why it matters. Moore explores how metaphysics can help us to cope with continually changing demands on our humanity by making sense of things in ways that are radically new
Infinity ( Book )
11 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 190 libraries worldwide
Contemporary Kantian metaphysics : new essays on space and time by Roxana Baiasu( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 157 libraries worldwide
Responding to growing interest in the Kantian tradition and in issues concerning space and time, this volume offers an insightful and original contribution to the literature by bringing together analytical and phenomenological approaches in a productive exchange on topical issues such as action, perception, the body, and cognition and its limits
Ethics and the limits of philosophy by Bernard Williams( Book )
24 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
"Remarkably lively and enjoyable ... It is a very rich book, containing excellent descriptions of a variety of moral theories, and innumerable and often witty observations on topics encountered on the way."--Times Literary Supplement. Bernard Williams was one of the greatest philosophers of his generation. Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy is not only widely acknowledged to be his most important book, but also hailed a contemporary classic of moral philosophy. Drawing on the ideas of the Greek philosophers, Williams reorients ethics away from a preoccupation with universal moral theories towards 'truth, truthfulness and the meaning of an individual life'. He explores and reflects upon the most difficult problems in contemporary philosophy and identifies new ideas about central issues such as relativism, objectivity and the possibility of ethical knowledge. This edition also includes a commentary on the text by A.W. Moore

"This unique series provides an insightful look into the history of philosophy and the impact it has had on Western civilization"--Container
Western philosophy ( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 24 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
Western philosophy ( visu )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 24 libraries worldwide
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

La filosofia come disciplina umanistica by Bernard Williams( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in Italian and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Che cosa può, e che cosa non può, fare la filosofia? Quali sono i suoi rischi etici e quali le possibili ricompense? In che cosa differisce dalla scienza? In "La filosofia come disciplina umanistica", Bernard Williams affronta tali questioni e presenta un'illuminante visione della filosofia come fondamentalmente differente dalla scienza per scopi e metodi, anche se "in filosofia, dovrebbe esserci qualcosa che conti come azzeccarci o far bene". Scritto con la sua caratteristica combinazione di rigore, immaginazione, spessore e profonda umanità, questo libro dimostra chiaramente perché Williams sia stato uno dei massimi filosofi del ventesimo secolo. Il saggio che dà il titolo alla raccolta è poi "una specie di manifesto per la concezione che Williams aveva del lavoro della sua vita. È qui che egli si dedica nella maniera più esplicita alla questione del contributo che la filosofia può dare o meno al progetto della comprensione delle cose", come scrive il curatore A.W. Moore. "La filosofia come disciplina umanistica" è l'ultimo dei tre libri postumi di Williams, dopo "In principio era l'azione" e "Il senso del passato"
