These works, as the sub-title makes clear, are unfinished sketches for <i>Philosophical Investigations</i>, possibly the most important and influential philosophical work of modern times. The &#8216;Blue Book&#8217; is a set of notes dictated to Witgenstein&#8217;s Cambridge students in 1933-1934: the &#8216;Brown Book&#8217; was a draft for what eventually became the growth of the first part of <i>Philosophical Investigations</i>. This book reveals the germination and growth of the ideas which found their final expression in Witgenstein&#8217;s later work. It is indispensable therefore to students of Witgenstein&#8217;s thought and to all those who wish to study at first-hand the mental processes of a thinker who fundamentally changed the course of modern philosophy.
