  George Edward Moore - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
George Edward Moore, usually known as G.E. Moore, (November 4, 1873 – October 24, 1958) was a distinguished and hugely influential English philosopher who was educated and taught at the University of Cambridge.
Moore is best known today for his defense of ethical non-naturalism, his emphasis on common sense in philosophical method, and the paradox which bears his name.
Moore is also remembered for drawing attention to the peculiar inconsistency involved in uttering a sentence such as "It will rain but I don't believe that it will"--a puzzle which is now commonly called "Moore's paradox".

 George Edward Moore's Principia Ethica
Moore says that the subject-matter of ethics is most often concerned with human conduct, and with the question of what is good or bad, what is right or wrong.
Moore says that Egoism, as it concerns the consequences of actions, is a philosophy that each person desires his or her own happiness, and that therefore each person’s happiness is the only thing desirable.
Moore argues that Utilitarianism is contradictory, in that it does not accurately distinguish between actions that promote happiness only as a means to future happiness, and actions that promote happiness as an end in itself.

 Moore
Moore was a significant influence on Russell, Wittgenstein, Ryle.
Moore's departure from idealistic philosophy began with a criticism of internal relations in the careful analysis of truth and falsity in "The Nature of Judgment" (1899).
Continuing to develop his realistic convictions, Moore argued in "A Defence of Common Sense" (1925) that we all certainly know the truth of many propositions about ourselves, bodies, and other people, even though we may be uncertain about the correct analysis of these propositions.

 Moore
George Edward Moore was born in 1873, in England, one of eight children.
Moore's early tendency was toward the classics and, when he went up to Cambridge (Trinity College) in 1892, it was to read the classics.
Moore's contributions tended to be personal --- an ever-present participant in discussions, striking in his analytic abilities, and insightful in his recognition and advancement of the era's central themes.

 George Edward Moore
Moore concentrates here on the case of a ‘sensation of blue’ and maintains that this experience is a kind of ‘diaphanous’ consciousness or awareness of blue, which is not a ‘content’ of experience at all, but something real whose existence is not dependent on experience.
Moore's argument against the thesis that all relations are internal starts from the claim that the burden of proof lies on its supporters since it conflicts with our common sense conviction that things are not essentially inter-related in such a way that a change to one thing in one respect necessitates changes to everything else.
Moore then argues that the best reason one could have for the thesis involves a logical fallacy; he shows how the thesis that all relations are internal might be plausibly, but fallaciously, inferred from Leibniz’ Law, the uncontentious principle that things which differ in their relations must differ in their identity.

 Conceptanalysis, Language and Logic/Moore George Edward
Moore's attitude to the classical "problem of the external world" underwent a transformation parallel to his theory of the truth.
Moore is here defending "external" relations, as against the theory of "internal" relations which he ascribes to the British Idealists.
Moore chose as the epigraph to Principia Ethica one quotation from Butler: "a thing is what it is and not another thing", a quotation which summarizes the character of his opposition to the monism.
