The work of Ludwig Wittgenstein is a strange product of hard reasoning and brilliant imagination. Wittgenstein produced not one but two highly original philosophies at different times of his life, both of which must be understood, and reconciled. In this book David Pears analyses Wittgenstein's two major works, the 'Tractatus Logico-Philosphicus' and the 'Philosophical Investigations', and sets his conclusions against the background of the striking changes in the nature of philosophy in this century.
"Pears succeeds in conveying vertiginously difficult ideas in the simplest words."
ANTHONY QUINTON, 'Sunday Times'
"…I read it with fascination. The writing has that beautiful clarity which some philosophers achieve, and which gives me, for a few moments, the euphoric illusion of having understood an abstruse argument."
JOHN WAIN, 'Observer'
"This is one of the best studies of Wittgenstein that has yet appeared … a subtle and intricate work, wide in scope and rigorously argued."
