This is not a page turner, in fact you have to read each gnomic paragraph several times to determine what precisely it means and why exactly it has been included at this poiunt. Well, what do expect from ground breaking philosophy from a testily eccentric genius?
this book is simply breathtaking - its content is penetrating and leaves you wondering about the incredible genius that created this masterpiece.
this particular offering from wittgenstien perfectly compliments his other works and offers insight into our perception of the world and casts doubt on the information offered to us at every level. each time I read it I realise that whilst I probably will never understand this book it nevertheless never fails to add something - at an inner level.
On Certainty was LWs last effort to tacle the problem of philosophy. Especially the issue of being certain of things. It consists of a number of reflections on how you reason when you are certain. LW concludes that every uncertainty have its ground in some sort of basic knowledge. You know something to uncertain of something in that area. It is a book that is very easy to read, as opposed to the ones he has written.
