Glad to have got this translation of Wittgenstein's, which is out of print, by help of Amazon with a few days.

Revolutionary work about philosophy. It is usually neglected nowadays but it gives radically different ideas about philosophy overall.

This is an unusual and highly eccentric book, so much so indeed that it is hard to describe it. In places it reads like a treatise on logic, in others like the poems of Rumi and still others like a thesis on the merits and demerits of language. Basically Wittgenstein is arguing in his own "sui generis" way that conceptual confusions surrounding language use are at the root of most philosophical problems. Challenging but wholly enjoyable read.

A philosophical earthquake at richter scale 10!
The book is sharp and the contents are sharper.
A summary of some of the contents:
- A refutation against referentialism.
- Meaning as 'Use'.
- Language games.
- Rules.
- A refutation against Private Language.
- Theories on Psychology.
You can't go wrong even if you do prefer the Tractatus.
