A beautifully lucid guide through the main themes of the Investigations ... The movement of Wittgenstein's thought, how the different topics hang together, why they come in the order they do--are all made clearer than any other discussion I know.Jane Heal, St. John's College, Cambridge
McGinn's efforts to display the anti-theoretical thrust of Wittgenstein's thinking are effective ... [She] makes the Investigations
more accessible to (advanced) undergraduates than anything else out there. For graduate students ... it could, coupled with the Investigations
, become the standard introduction.Teaching Philosophy
