Volume 2 "An Introduction to Wittgenstein's 'Tractatus'" by G.E.M. Anscombe (1971 ed., 180pp) is a reprint of the fourth corrected edition. Anscombe's "Introduction" guides the reader through the "Tractatus" and, thereby, Wittgenstein's early philosophy as a whole. She shows in particular how his arguments developed out of the discussions of Russell and Frege.
Volume 3 "Wittgenstein: Souces and Perspectives" ed. by C.G. Luckhardt (1979 ed., 169pp) contains 11 essays of two sorts - those which present sources for the study of Wittgenstein's philosophy, and those which relate particular aspects of his work to that of other thinkers. It includes essays by Georg Henrik von Wright, P.M.S. Hacker, Gordon Baker and David Pears.
In Volume 4 "Discussions of Wittgenstein" by Rush Rhees (1970 ed., 169pp), Rhees works out in these discussions what he learned from Wittgenstein's personal teachings and from study of his published and unpublished writings. It includes review articles of books on Wittgenstein and independent discussions of points of Wittgenstein's philosophy.
Volume 5"Ludwig Wittgenstein: Philosophy and Language" ed. by Alice Ambrose and Morris Lazerowitz (1972 ed., 325pp), shows how Wittgenstein put a linguistic light on philosophy. In this anthology of essays the contributors attempt to elucidate and critically assess Wittgenstein's reflections on a number of problems. It includes essays by John Wisdom, Theodore Redpath, George Pitcher and Morris Lazerowitz.
In Volume 6 "Wittgenstein's 'Tractacus': A Critical Exposition of the Main Lines of Thought" by Erik Stenius (1964 ed., 252pp), Stenius constructs an analysis of the structure of the "Tractatus", the terminology used within it and the various interrelations between its different statements. He concludes that many adherents and critics have misunderstood the main lines of thought - in particular, its basic idea of the "picture theory" of linguistic symbolism. Stenius aims to untangle the misunderstandings, often through parallels with Kant.
