Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Perhaps wait for the paperback edition. Most of the articles here have been previously published. The Wittgensteinian dialogue with McDowell is here. Some unpublished work on self-knowledge. Overall, this is not the first book I'd recommend for someone wanting to learn Wittgenstein or how to write clear philosophical prose. His prose is about one rung up from Peacocke. Not even as clear as the occasional obscurities of McDowell. I'd only recommend this text for Wittgenstein die-hards.
