No serious philosopher or student of philosophy can afford to neglect Wittgenstein's work. Professor Fogelin provides an authoritative critical evaluation of both the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations, enabling the reader to come to grips with these difficult yet key works.
Fogelin explains Wittgenstein's attempt in the Tractatus to combine a picture theory of propositional structure, and also explores Wittgenstein's own criticisms of the Tractarian synthesis. He gives particular attention to topics in the philosophy of language, logic, psychology and the foundations of mathematics, examining Wittgenstein's work on these fields and arguing that Wittgenstein's criticisms in these areas form the basis for a radically new standpoint in philosophy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very useful book July 29, 2006
John Searle once said that this is the best book on Wittgenstein. I partially agree. I find this book the best introduction to the Tractatus I've ever read, lucid, insightful and clear, and also a good introduction to the late philosophy of Wittgenstein. It is not as scholarly competent as Anthony Kenny's book, which I still find the best introduction to the whole philosophy of Wittgenstein, but it has its own merits, like the independent criticism against the private language argument at the end of the book.
