Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This is one of a series of similar, very brief and amusing books on philosophers (Descartes, Kant, etc.) by a journalist and novelist trained in philosophy who, with his 90-minute series, is keeping pace with the speed of modern life. Wittgenstein in 90 minutes—imagine! After a brief summary essay on the philosopher's life and works, which at best gives us the flavor or aroma of Wittgenstein's thought, we are presented with some well-known quotations from his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus; for example, 'The world is all that is the case,' and 'The facts in logical space are the world.' Not even 900 minutes will be enough for most of Strathern's uninitiated readers to grasp Wittgenstein's meaning." Reviewed by Andrew Witmer, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
