Abstract

I begin by discussing the stature of More within the philosophical community of his own era, and his importance for historians of philosophy in ours, an importance that stems equally from his own original contributions to the field and from his interactions with other figures, notable in their own right, from Descartes to Newton. Then, in order to set the scene for what follows, I set out More’s goals, and briefly summarise the epistemological and methodological backdrop against which he worked to construct his metaphysical system.
