What People are Saying About This

"This volume gathers together bold and innovative attempts to present the affinities and measure the differences between two thinkers who have left an indelible impression on the philosophical landscape."

Tom Greaves, University of East Anglia

"This is leading-edge scholarship that breaks new ground. In fact, the authors go beyond scholarship to doing good philosophy by riding on Heidegger’s and Wittgenstein’s shoulders. The authors are more concerned about getting the two thinkers ‘right’ with each other for new philosophical discoveries than getting the interpretation of each of the philosophers’ difficult texts right."

Nicholas F. Gier, University of Idaho
