Overview

This moving and authoritative portrait of Ludwig Wittgenstein—one of the most powerful influences on contemporary philosophy—treats Wittgenstein the man, his unusual teaching methods, and his modes of thought and expression as seen through the eyes of Norman Malcolm, first as a student and later as a close personal friend. This new edition contains the complete text of fifty-seven letters written by Wittgenstein to Malcolm over a period of eleven years. Appearing in print for the first time in their entirety, these letters serve to illuminate Wittgenstein as a warm and concerned friend as he gives advice, teases, and offers sympathy.
