Editorial Reviews


'This is an excellent book: it provides the clear and direct exposition that students need, at the same time as conveying a sense of the depth, the importance, and the interest of Wittgenstein's text. Morris sheds new light on some of the most important issues for interpreting the Tractatus, and his treatment of them is clearly informed by a deep fascination with Wittgenstein's thought that will carry first-time students on to further work as well as appealing to more experienced readers.' - Peter Sullivan, University of Stirling, UK

‘... I think this is one of the best books about the Tractatus that I have read. ...It is suffused with a sort of sceptical enthusiasm for the Tractatus which seems to me to be just the right attitude to encourage in students coming to this frustratingly fascinating work for the first time. I recommend it.’ – Michael Potter, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Diogenes the Dog on April 22, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This Guidebook is great. Having only the most precarious of grasps on the formidable (and formidably frustrating) Tractatus, this book led me assuredly, if a bit repetitively, through the basics of Wittgenstein scholarship. A relatively strong understanding of philosophy is a must to get the most out this book as it delves fairly deep into the various realist/idealist/solipsistic interpretations of the Tractatus as well as having a lengthy and helpful chapter on Tractarian logic, which isn't always easy.

While there is always more to learn from TLP, this Guidebook provided me with the basic structure and mysterious paradoxes that constitute Wittgenstein's system. For anyone interested in the Tractatus who yearns for recent scholarship and a good perspective on his loudest commentators, e.g. Hacker, Anscombe, Ramsey, Russell, etc, etc. this is a good buy. You won't be babied, but you won't be left behind either.
