Greg Moore, who previously taught at the University of St Andrews and the University of Wales Aberystwyth, specializes in the intellectual history of Germany and in the history of science. His work focuses in particular on the German Enlightenment, the philosophy of history, and the reception of Darwinism.
He is the author of Nietzsche, Biology and Metaphor (Cambridge University Press, 2002), as well as the translator of Herder’s Selected Writings on Aesthetics (Princeton University Press, 2006) and Fichte’s Addresses to the German Nation (Cambridge University Press, 2008). He is currently working on a new translation of Herder’s monumental Ideas toward a Philosophy of History of Mankind, one of the founding texts of what Georg Iggers famously called “the German conception of history”, and a monograph entitled Herder and Philosophy, which will not only provide the first English-language overview of Herder’s multifaceted thought, but also situate his work within the context, social, political and intellectual, of his time.
