Moore’s writings at this time (“It was towards the end of 1898 that Moore and I rebelled against both Kant and Hegel. Moore led the way, but I followed closely in his footsteps,” 1995a: 42). G. E. Moore was two years younger than Russell. Having been drawn from the study of classics to that of philosophy at Trinity College partly through Russell’s influence he graduated in 1896 and completed his own, successful, dissertation for a prize fellowship in 1898. It is in this dissertation that Moore works out his own break with idealism.

He is not yet someone whose works belong only to the history of philosophy. He lived to be nearly 100 and there is every reason to expect that some of his writings will have an active life and age at least as great as his. A classic instance is provided by his introduction to philosophy, The Problems of Philosophy (his “shilling shocker” as he liked to call it), which, though published in 1912, remains one of the best popular introductions to the subject. Early life Despite the fact that as a philosopher Russell remains almost a contemporary, in other respects his life now seems very distant from us.

At the same time he married, and then travelled with his first wife, Alys, to Germany. In his Autobiography he recounts a moment of clear-minded future resolution during this honeymoon: During this time my intellectual ambitions were taking shape. I resolved not to adopt a profession, but to devote myself to writing. I remember a cold, bright day in early spring when I walked by myself in the Tiergarten, and made projects of future work. I thought that I would write one series of books on the philosophy of the sciences from pure mathematics to physiology, and another series of books on social questions.
