Wittgenstein 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I bought this book to get my first taste of Wittgenstein, beyond Wikipedia articles, podcasts, and the general "mythology" built around him. After reading this book, though, the mythology might be the most attractive part of Wittgenstein's philosophy (for me). I think Wittgenstein might have been a continental philosopher trapped in an analytic philosopher's body, if that makes sense... and Grayling critiques Wittgenstein enough to give one an appreciable context of his impact. The book presents a chapter of biography and then summarizes Wittgenstein's early and late writings. I imagine it's about as straightforward a presentation as one can attempt with Wittgenstein, so for a quick digestion I recommend the book.
