From the Publisher"The essays...are scholarly, and profound, and also acute,confident, and full of good sense and judgment" (Colin Radford,Mind)
"This book is a landmark in Wittgenstein studies, raising to anew level the criteria for an adequate understanding ofWittgenstein." (Philosophical Studies)
"For someone who wants to understand, point for point and indetail, how Wittgenstein's later philosophy upsets the philosophiesof Russell, Frege and the Tractatus, this is the book toread." (Philosophical Books)
"[The authors'] interpretive essays develop with care, subtlety,and in considerable detail...they have performed a great service inpresenting the programmatic views clearly, carefully anddispassionately."
"Wittgenstein: Meaning and Understanding is a sort of compendiumwhich I wouldn’t want to do without. As a matter of fact, Icannot do without it, both in the sense that I need it to get allkinds of historical or philological information, as well asphilosophical stimulation, and in the sense that I have becomeaddicted to the book's magisterial way of bringing out and dealingwith the difficulties of Wittgenstein’s masterpiece."
