Wittgenstein

«

‘This introduction to the work of one of the most important figures in the history of philosophy is both accessible and reliable. Child's lucid prose demystifies Wittgenstein's main ideas and makes intelligible the key transitions in his thought from early to late. Highly recommended.’ – Michael Potter, University of Cambridge, UK

'A profound and illuminating contribution to the Wittgenstein corpus, combining scholarship and readability. Child’s engagement with various theories and themes in Wittgenstein’s writings, along with his attention to background and historical context, makes this an informative and immensely rewarding book.' – Robert Brice, Loyola University, USA

'A pellucid introduction in both style and structure, pitched at just the right level for higher level undergraduates.' - Andy Hamilton, Durham University, UK

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) is considered by most philosophers - even those who do not share his views - to be the most influential philosopher of the 20th century. His contributions to the philosophy of language, mind, meaning and psychology - as well as to logic, mathematics and epistemology - permanently altered the philosophical landscape, and his Tractatus Logico Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations continue to be studied in philosophy departments around in the world.

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) is considered by most philosophers - even those who do not share his views - to be the most influential philosopher of the 20th century. His contributions to the philosophy of language, mind, meaning and psychology - as well as to logic, mathematics and epistemology - permanently altered the philosophical landscape, and his Tractatus Logico Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations continue to be studied in philosophy departments around in the world. In this superb introduction and overview of Wittgenstein's life and work, William Child discusses:











Wittgenstein's early work, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, including his account of language and thought
Wittgenstein's subsequent rejection of some of the central doctrines of the Tractatus
Wittgenstein's later philosophy
intentionality and rule-following
philosophy of mind and psychology in Philosophical Investigations
knowledge and certainty, and Wittgenstein's final work
philosophy of religion
the legacy and influence of Wittgenstein's ideas in philosophy, and beyond.





Including a chronology, glossary, and helpful conclusions to each chapter, Wittgenstein is essential reading for anyone coming to Wittgenstein's philosophy for the first time.
