For sites on the subject of G.E. Moore (1873-1958), who believed that the purpose of philosophy is not to debate their truth of common-sense beliefs about the world, but rather to seek an appropriate analysis of their significance.
"I can prove now, for instance, that two human hands exist. How? By holding up my two hands, and saying, as I make a certain gesture with the right hand, 'Here is one hand,' and adding, as I make a certain gesture with the left, 'and here is another.' By doing this, I have proved ipso facto the existence of external things . . . there is no need to multiply examples."
