5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, Now It All Makes Sense!, 20 July 2012
This review is from: How to Read Wittgenstein (Paperback)
1. The world is everything that is the case.
7. What we cannot speak of we must pass over in silence.

Ray Monk's clearly written book explains how you get from the first proposition of Ludo W's Tractatus via logical steps to the seventh and final proposition. He discusses the mystical aspects of this baffling work and how it might apply to ethics. Anybody who, like me, has struggled with the Tractatus to see in it anything more than a massively overcomplicated set of tautologies whose message (if there is one) is that there is stuff that language can cope with and stuff that it cannot cope with (well duh!) will find this helpful.

Monk also deals with Philosophical Investigations and some other of Wiggy's arcane musings. As I'm about to embark on Philosophical Investigations, I need all the help I can get. An essential introduction.
