About G. E. Moore

GEORGE EDWARD MOORE, noted epistemologist, moral philosopher, and "ordinary language" philosopher, was born on November 4, 1873, in Upper Norwood, London. He was educated at Dulwich College at the University of Cambridge, where he specialized in the classics until turn-ing his attention to philosophy. He lectured at Cambridge from 1911 to 1925, at which time he was appointed professor and taught there until his retirement in 1939. In addition to writing Principia Ethica (1902), Moore was the editor of the internationally respected journal Mind from 1921 to 1947. In 1951 he was awarded England's highest honor, the Order of Merit. He died in Cambridge on October 24, 1958.
