G.E. Moore, more than either Bertrand Russell or Ludwig Wittgenstein, was chiefly responsible for the rise of the analytic method in twentieth-century philosophy. This selection of his writings shows Moore at his very best.
The classic essays are crucial to major philosophical debates that still resonate today. Amongst those included are:
* A Defense of Common Sense
* External and Internal Relations
* Hume's Theory Explained
* Is Existence a Predicate?
* Proof of an External World
In addition, this collection also contains the key early papers in which Moore signals his break with idealism, and three important previously unpublished papers from his later work which illustrate his relationship with Wittgenstein.

Thomas Baldwin is Lecturer in Philosophy at Clare College, Cambridge University and a Fellow of Clare College. He is the author the critical study G. E. Moore (Routledge, 1990).Review:
"This is a well chosen selection of the writings of a great philosopher of common sense. His defense of common sense was a twentieth century development of the tradition of John Locke and Thomas Reid. Moore added a dimension of analytical acuteness and precision to the defense, however, that was previously unknown and remains unexcelled. His clear and profound analyses are a monument to the power of the human mind to understand itself, the external world, and relation of one to the other. As we turn to a new century, we may observe the philosophical pretensions of our time and turn to common sense, to Moore, to free us from them, just as he freed us in this century from the errors of the last. We may thus freed find the way to truth."
-Keith Lehrer, University of Arizona
