2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By W. Jamison VINE VOICE on February 4, 2004
Format: Paperback
This is a small and clear book describing the later work of Wittgenstein. For those looking for a good but brief explanation of the connection between Wittgenstein's philosophy and the social theory of knowledge this is a handy resource. Since it is becomming clearer all the time that Wittgenstein was a main influence in the paradigm shift -- the linguistic turn to socially constructed knowledge, resources like this should be on the shelf for students meeting Wittgenstein for the first time. This book should show up as a reference in many term papers.
