His best known work, the Tractatus is a unique and astonishing rebuttal to that most vital of tools in human reason, logic itself. Using reason, Wittgenstein was able to deduce that reason itself was an intractable problem to justify, one that would forever chase its own tail down a hallway of echoed tautologies. Piece by Piece Wittgenstein tears away at the structure of logical positivism, leaving it mortally wounded and desperately clinging to life. Though it is our finest tool, the Tractatus reveals to us that logic is not God's calculus, but a trap that ensnares and limits our very thoughts. This book is a linguistic revelation, one that will surely rock the western world for many years to come.
