"...The sixteen specially commissioned essays in this volume are a welcome addition... they elaborate three important themes that should interest not just philosophers and Wittgenstein scholars but anyone concerned with how we find meaning in -- or make sense of -- our lives... these essays are rich with illuminating readings and extensions of the remarks on aspect-seeing and Wittgenstein's views generally..."
--James Taggart, Ph.D., Metapsychology Online Reviews
"....bold new collection of essays by a luminous group of philosophers.... there is much more to this exciting collection than there is space here to mention, let alone discuss. The papers taken as a whole represent a substantial and original contribution not only to Wittgenstein studies, but also to the philosophy of perception and much else besides. The breadth and depth of the volume means it should be of immediate and enduring interest to philosophers of all persuasions."
--Michael Campbell, King's College London
"....It is a model of precision and clarity, and covers an impressive amount territory in a clear fashion. Seeing Wittgenstein Anew is a provocative, strikingly insightful, important and timely book, assessing the current state of Wittgenstein scholarship that surrounds aspect-seeing.... Seeing Wittgenstein Anew is a stimulating presentation of a wide ranging and sophisticated perspective, rigorous and yet generous with argumentative opponents, and making a significant contribution to the literature on the Wittgenstein's later thought as a whole. Seeing Wittgenstein Anew brings together in a unified theory the many ideas that show that aspect-seeing is a pervasive and guiding concept in Wittgenstein's efforts to turn philosophy's attention to the actual conditions of our common life in language."
--Linguistic and Philosophical Investigations, George Lazaroiu, Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences, New York
"William Day and Viktor J. Krebs' Seeing Wittgenstein Anew succeeds as an argument for the centrality of aspect-seeing in Wittgenstein's philosophy and as an argument for the more general philosophical importance of aspect-seeing to questions of mind, language, knowledge, and art.... the book contains many more successful arguments for seeing Wittgenstein anew..."
--Chris Weigel, Utah Valley University, Journal of the History of Philosophy
Seeing Wittgenstein Anew is the first collection to examine Ludwig Wittgenstein's remarks on the concept of aspect-seeing. These essays show that aspect-seeing was not simply one more topic of investigation in Wittgenstein's later writings, but, rather, that it was a pervasive and guiding concept in his efforts to turn philosophy's attention to the actual conditions of our common life in language.
