Professor Adrian Moore on life as a philosopher

Professor Adrian Moore gave a wide-ranging interview last month, well worth reading in full.

He spoke about his upbringing and influences, finding his philosophical voice, and what he would do if he were made king of British philosophy. His answer: “to impose significant penalties on anyone who published more than two journal articles or one monograph in any six-year period.”

Professor Moore has been at St Hugh’s for over thirty years, and he says our College “has a reputation—a justified reputation, I should add—for being a particularly friendly and relaxed college”.
