Exploring all of the central themes of Wittgenstein's oeuvre, this volume includes discussion of core topics such as meaning and use, rule following, the picture theory of language and the nature of philosophy. It also contains topics in which Wittgenstein's influence is becoming more apparent, such as intentionality and ethics. The book provides a wide-ranging collection of newly commissioned essays on Wittgenstein by internationally established philosophers, including Robert L. Arrington, Stewart Candlish, P. M. S. Hacker, Oswald Hanfling, Hide Ishiguro, Howard Mounce, Bede Rundle and D. Z. Phillips. The introductory essay explains the various perspectives of the contributors and offers an introduction to Wittgenstein's work and its development. The essays can profitably be used in conjunction with the selections from Wittgenstein's work assembled in A. J. P. Kenny's The Wittgenstein Reader.

Industry Reviews

"Fifty years after the death of Ludwig Wittgenstein, it is clear that his contribution to philosophy will be as important in the twenty-first century as it was in the twentieth. In this volume Hans-Johann Glock has assembled a number of critical essays by distinguished scholars which will make a weighty contribution to the as yet incomplete reception of Wittgenstein. Writing from a variety of standpoints, the authors offer interpretations of the Wittgensteinian canon which range between the traditional and the innovative, but always invite serious consideration, and which offer a re-evaluation of contemporary trends in philosophy in the light of Wittgenstein's insights."
Anthony Kenny, Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Oxford University
