Review:

"Monk's energetic enterprise is remarkable for the interweaving of the philosophical and the emotional aspects of Wittgenstein's life" ( Sunday Times)

"Ray Monk's reconnection of Wittengenstein's philosophy with his life triumphantly carries out the Wittengensteinian task of "changing the aspect" of Wittgenstein's work, getting us to see it in a new way" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"This biography transforms Wittengenstein into a human being" ( Independent on Sunday)

"It is much to be recommended" ( Observer)

"Monk's biography is deeply intelligent, generous to the ordinary reader... It is a beautiful portrait of a beautiful life" ( Guardian)

Winner of the Mail on Sunday/John Llewellyn Rhys Prize 1990
