About the Author

St. Hugh's College, Oxford


'In Noble in Reason, Infinite in Faculty, A.W. Moore mines Kant for ethical insight with a sensibility informed by a wide range of recent and contemporary philosophers, from Ludwig Wittgenstein through Bernard Williams and Gilles Deleuze... a particularly helpful account of Kant's philosophy of religion...' Paul Guyer, in Times Literary Supplement

'... it is refreshing to encounter a book dealing with Kant's practical philosophy that does not wear its readers down with quandaries about universalizability, autonomy, and the moral law... It is time to try something different, and Moore has certainly done that.' Robert B. Louden, in Mind

'... an original contribution to the ethical discussion of our time...' Manfred Kuehn

'... deeply engages some of the most important pieces of Kant's moral and religious thinking...' Philip Rossi

'clearly written... numerous provocative insights... readers will benefit from the way in which familiar themes have been deployed and reconfigured for the sake of a fairly audacious result. Moore derives something like a substitute for postmodernity's lost sense of a grounding metanarrative from the human capacity for sense making... [His] project might... be viewed as the effort to infuse our very tendency towards sense making with renewed dignity.' Gordon E. Michalson, in Kantian Review

'... a continuing, deep and detailed collaborative discussion with the Kant who makes best sense to [Moore] of matters of the utmost importance to them both and... to the rest of us as well... an exceptionally thought-provoking and serious book by one of our most technically proficient, but at the same time most imaginative-in short, one of our very best-contemporary philosophers... [Though this closely-argued, rich and engaging book] is, certainly and in many ways, a book for philosophers, it is equally one that may be read with much serious pleasure by anyone with a taste for reflection about the proper status of moral and religious thinking.' Alan Montefiore, in Balliol College Record
