Publisher Comments:

Immediately upon its posthumous publication in 1953, Ludwig Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations was hailed as a masterpiece, and the ensuing years have confirmed this initial assessment. Today it is widely acknowledged to be the single most important philosophical work of the twentieth century.

In this definitive new en face German-English edition, Wittgenstein experts Peter Hacker and Joachim Schulte have incorporated significant editorial changes to earlier editions of Philosophical Investigations in order to reflect more closely Wittgenstein's original intentions. Notable revisions include the placement of Wittgenstein's notes – Randbemerkungen –  into their designated positions in the text, some corrections to the originally published German text, and the numbering of all the remarks in what was Part 2 and is now named Philosophy of Psychology – A Fragment. Extensive modifications and corrections have also been made to G. E. M. Anscombe's original English translation. Detailed editorial endnotes have been added to illuminate difficult translation decisions and to identify references and allusions in Wittgenstein's original text.

Book News Annotation:

The second most important work by German philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was first published in 1953 in German and English. A second edition followed in 1958, and a third in 2003 after Anscombe's death, both with corrections. The major change in this fourth is to drop the division into two parts: Part I has become Philosophical Investigations and Part II Philosophy of Psychology--A Fragment. It also makes more changes to the translation than previous editions, partly to reflect changes in English over the past half century, and partly to incorporate different thinking about the various texts and their place in the whole. As before, the German and English are on facing pages. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
