1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Cliff Trewin on December 23, 2007
Format: Hardcover
J.F.M. Hunter was my philosophy prof at the University of Toronto. He was an unrepentant linguistic analyst who spent all his working time trying to get to the bottom of what people meant. Wittgenstein was his man and provided him with his methods and attitude. And Wittgenstein like us lesser humans "gassed" a lot (said unclear and unmeaningful things) and Hunter went after him with an uncompromising zeal.

This book represents as close a thing to generalizations as Hunter ever went. While his typical style was to worry an individual problem without reference to others he and the master (Wittgenstein) noticed there were certain generic ways of dealing with problems.

If you like me recieve dubious and baffling assertions all the time which strike at your unprotected psyche, this is the book for you. After a Hunter rubdown all is clear.
