Written by eminent philosophers from Britain, Europe, America and Australia, the essays of this collection are a tribute to Peter Winch, whose work is marked by his deep appreciation of the fundamental aspect of Wittgenstein's legacy: that we cannot detach our concepts from their roots in human life. The voices in this volume unite in different tones of sympathy and criticism by discussing the theme of human conditioning: the human conditioning of what we can find intelligible, possible and impossible, and the suspicion of an illusory transcendence. The issue is first raised in connection with metaphysics and then pursued in the domains of ethics and the philosophy of social science.
