Editorial Reviews

Times Literary Supplement
Wittgenstein, in his preface, tells us that his book is not a textbook, and that its object will be attained if there is one person who reads it with understanding and to whom it affords pleasure. We think there are many persons who will read it with understanding and enjoy it. The treatise is clear and lucid. The author is continually arresting us with new and striking thoughts, and he closes on a note of mystical exaltation.
Michael Frayn
Tractatus is one of the fundamental texts of twentieth-century philosophy - short, bold, cryptic, and remarkable in its power to stir the imagination of philosophers and non-philosophers alike.

This book is in two languages, printed side-by-side. A clever idea in print. Completely broken in the ebook format.

Wittgenstein's lucid presentation of his concepts is inspiring. The reader will find a new and helpful view of logic and language through this master work.

This is a terrible translation. Wittgenstien is difficult enough without trying to sift through a botched up translation that isn't even gramatically correct much of the time.
