An indispensible resource, this collection of Wittgenstein's key shorter works -- in some cases expanded and corrected -- offers the full German text of those selections originally written in German. Highlights include 'Notes for the 'Philosophical Lecture', an essay on private language and experience, published here for the first time; an emended version of the crucially important 'Notes for Lectures on Private Experience and Sense Data'; and 'Remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough', Wittgenstein's ground-breaking critique of Frazer's classic study of magic and religion. Fifteen selections that span the development of Wittgenstein's thought, his wide range of interest, and his methods of philosophical investigation offer subtle insights into the character and personality of their author. Included are reflections on ethics, language, logic, experience, culture, anthropology, the nature of philosophy, aesthetics, and mathematics. Together they take us a step closer toward an accurate and rounded picture of the lifelong philosophical activity of one of the most intriguing philosophers of the twentieth century.

Industry Reviews

A magnificent collection . . . the editors are to be congratulated. --Steven Gerrard, Williams College . . .selections make available in easily accessible form some of the most interesting smaller writings of Wittgenstein's, including the longest explanation he ever gave of the nature of the philosophical enterprise. --Jaakko Hintikka, Boston University [The editors] have usefully and skillfully assembled various writings by Wittgenstein. . . . to permit a synoptic view of his several concerns. . . . The book is an excellent source and it provides a nourishing supplement to the Investigations. --Colin McGinn, The New Republic
