5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Matthew Broome VINE VOICE on 7 Dec. 2003
Hacker's Insight and Illusion is a very important and useful distillation of his work on Wittgenstein, and in particular his commentary on the Philosophical Investigations. The book works through Wittgenstein's philosophical career, from before the Tractatus and puts them into the context of his influences. These include sections of the book devoted to Frege, Russell, and the Vienna Circle.
The book explores Wittgenstein's changing conception of the nature of philosophy, his thoughts on language and meaning and on the philosophy of psychology.
This book is an excellent overwiew of Wittgenstein's two masterpieces and the relationship between them. Highly recommended!
