Wittgenstein presents a concise, comprehensive and systematic treatment of the Austrian-born philosopher's thought. Renowned scholar Hans Sluga first recounts events in Wittgenstein's life in order to illuminate the historical, political and personal conditions from which his philosophical work emerged. Sluga's original analysis goes on to illustrate how Wittgenstein's thought may help us to face the peculiar problems of our own contemporary existence. Illuminating and thought-provoking, Wittgenstein offers new insights into the mind of one of the most original and influential thinkers of the twentieth century.
