Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this 1921 opus, Wittgenstein defined the object of philosophy as the logical clarification of thoughts and proposed the solution to most philosophic problems by means of a critical method of linguistic analysis. Beginning with the principles of symbolism, the author applies his theories to traditional philosophy, and more. Introduction by Bertrand Russell.

Book News Annotation:

Reprints not only the original translation from German, but also Bertrand Russell's introduction and the index, which was first added in a 1955 edition. Austro-British philosopher Wittgenstein (1889-1951) created a sensation among intellectuals with the treatise by claiming that philosophy was a matter of logic rather than of metaphysics. Cited in /Books for College Libraries, 3d ed./ Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)

Synopsis:

In his proposal of the solution to most philosophic problems by means of a critical method of linguistic analysis, Wittgenstein sets the stage for the development of logical positivism. Introduction by Bertrand Russell.

The world is everything that is the case. I understood maybe 1/5th of this short treatise on language, logic, solipsism and philosophy. But even that was enough to make it on this top ten list. The 1/5th understanding is after reading it three times, by the way. He's a poetic philosopher, so what he is saying is either 100 percent or zero percent clear. I wanted to read this a few times before starting his other works, so I will begin those in 2011.
