Overview

Comprising specially commissioned essays from some of the most significant contributors to the field, this volume provides a uniquely authoritative and thorough survey of the main lines of Wittgenstein scholarship over the past 50 years, tracing the history and current trends as well as anticipating the future shape of work on Wittgenstein.

Reflecting a range of different perspectives, some contributions offer an historical overview, mapping different schools and approaches to Wittgenstein interpretation. Others consider questions of methodology and style, or examine and shed new light on seminal controversies. Taken together, the essays provide a much needed overview of the complex landscape of both Wittgenstein exegesis and Wittgensteinian approaches to philosophy and will serve as an essential resource and guide for both students and scholars.
