From the Publisher"This is an excellent new introduction to Wittgenstein. It ishighly recommendable for graduate students and advancedundergraduates. It is also highly recommendable for professionalphilosophers, since Schroeder is likely to challenge one's currentconception of Wittgenstein."
—Brian Armstrong, Grazer PhilosophischeStudien
"This book is a truly impressive achievement … What isparticularly striking is the combination of three elements thathave rarely if ever been combined in such a forceful way: awell-informed and succinct presentation of the biographical andcultural context of Wittgenstein’s work, an exposition of hiscentral texts which combines lucid introduction with novelscholarship, and a dialectically astute discussion of thesubstantive philosophical issues."
—Hans-Johann Glock, University of Zurich
"Dr Schroeder has written an excellent introduction toWittgenstein's philosophy. He surveys the Tractatus and theInvestigations with exemplary clarity and sweeps away recentmisinterpretations with decisive arguments. His careful andmethodical elucidations of the major themes in Wittgenstein's workwill greatly benefit students."
—Peter Hacker, St John’s College, Oxford
