Product Description

Review

A magnificent collection ... the editors are to be congratulated. --Steven Gerrard, Williams College ...selections make available in easily accessible form some of the most interesting smaller writings of Wittgenstein's, including the longest explanation he ever gave of the nature of the philosophical enterprise. --Jaakko Hintikka, Boston University [The editors] have usefully and skillfully assembled various writings by Wittgenstein... to permit a synoptic view of his several concerns... The book is an excellent source and it provides a nourishing supplement to the Investigations. --Colin McGinn, The New Republic

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Mr. A. J. Thomas on 27 Sep 2007
Format: Paperback
This is a most useful collection of some Wittgenstein documents, including a good deal on private experience and private languages.
It also contains the only continuous statement Wittgenstein ever wrote on the philosophical enterprise, and for that, the book is worth it. His thoughts are tantalising and inviting: philosophy (and architecture!) is a form of work on the self or work on culture.
This book also includes the much-discussed documents on Frazer.

Important Collection 2 Aug 2000
By Andreas Saugstad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is an important collections of texts by Wittgenstein. For those interested in Wittgenstein and ethics, the lecture on ethics printed here may be significant. This book also contains Wittgenstein's remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough, which is important when one wants to understand Wittgenstein's views on religion and culture. However, the most important thing here is probably some remarks printed under the heading "Philosophy", where Wittgenstein spells out his views on philosophy. If one wants to get a clear grasp on the later Wittgenstein's view on philosophy, this piece is very important. The reader will recognize passages from Philosophical Investigations, but here Wittgenstein's philosophical therapy is stated even more clearly than in the Investigations.
