Editorial Reviews

Review

"A mojor contribution to the history of analytic philosophy, this substantial volume delivers even more than the title promises" David G Stern, The Philosophical Review

From the Back Cover

This text provides a unique and compelling account of Wittgenstein's impact upon twentieth century analytic philosophy, from its inception at the turn of the century to its subsequent decline.

It locates Wittgenstein in his historical context, identifies his main achievements and contrasts his two philosophies with those of Frege and Russell, the Vienna Circle, and the leading figures of Oxford philosophy. The juxtaposition of Wittgenstein and Quine is the most detailed comparative survey yet undertaken. The major criticisms of Wittgenstein's later philosophy are evaluated.

Lucid and accessible throughout, this volume will be a benchmark survey for all those interested in the history of philosophy in the twentieth century.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been reading by and about Wittgenstein for the last 4 or 5 years and recently came across this book. I believe I would have been spared a great amount of misunderstandings had I known Hacker's book earlier.
Although - as the title suggests - it is a general overview of Wittgenstein's thought, it gives a very clear if brief idea of all important issues and makes you understand his position as compared to many other great philosophers inside and outside Analytic Philosophy.
It also gives a brief overview of the development of Analytic Philosophy, its main contributors and their point of view on many decisive issues.
My thanks to Prof. Hacker for writing this great work.
