"Michael Peters and James Marshall lead the reader on a journey that will fascinate all who have an interest in the enigmatic figure of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Armed with an impressive range of scholarship, they start the journey with a comparison of Wittgenstein's works with those of figures who were receiving attention in his native fin de siecle Vienna--Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Spengler, Freud, and a variety of composers and artists. Peters and Marshall make the case that the early Wittgenstein was modernist (their discussion of the Tractatus as "showing" rather than "saying," and the comparison with modernist art, is fruitful), while the later Wittgenstein was more postmodernist in spirit--an analysis that is strengthened by the interesting comparisons they make between his work and that of Lyotard, Foucault, and Rorty. The book culminated with a convincing account of Wittgenstein's later work as embodying a conception of philosophy as pedagogy."-D.C.Phllips Professor of Education and, by courtesy, of Philosophy Stanford University
