Laurence Goldstein gives a straightforward and lively account of some of the central themes of Wittgenstein's writings on meaning, mind and mathematics. He does this both by drawing on Wittgenstein's work to show how his thinking developed over time, and by helping the reader gain some impression of what a strange character Wittgenstein was - for how he was intimately related to how and what he wrote.
Clear and Queer Thinking also brings Wittgenstein's ideas to bear on a wide range of topics in linguistics, cognitive science, psychology and neuroscience and will therefore be of interest not only to philosophers but also to linguists, psychologists and those working in the brain sciences.
