G. E. Moore : Principia Ethica

Virginia Stephen to Clive Bell, 19 August 1908: 'I split my head over Moore every night, feeling ideas travelling to the remotest part of my brain, and setting up a feeble disturbance, hardly to be called thought. It is almost a physical feeling, as though some little coil of brain unvisited by any blood so far, and pale as wax, had got a little life into it at last, but had not strength to keep it.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Virginia Stephen      Print: Book


G. E. Moore : 'Professor James' "Pragmatism"'

Leonard Woolf to G. E. Moore, 4 January 1909: 'I don't think you realize how pleased I was to get your letter & paper [...] I read your paper but to tell the actual truth I was disappointed, disappointed in the way in which most papers disappoint one. I want your opus magnum which will tell me what things are true much more than papers which tell me that Pragmatism, which I don't believe in, is false.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Leonard Woolf      Print: Unknown
