"Wittgenstein: A Way of Seeing" examines two related and neglected aspects of Wittgenstein's work: his conception of philosophy and his search for a style to embody his revolutionary practice. The landscapes of Wittgenstein's texts are surrealistically flat--no theories, arguments, or conclusions, nor chapter headings, notes, or narrative structures. Genova explores Wittgenstein's early style of logical poetics with its emphasis on elucidation and critique and his later rhetoric of grammatical reminders with its turn to therapy. She shows how Wittgenstein appropriated Kant and then Freud to present distinctive visions of the nature of philosophy, namely as clarification in the "Tractatus" and as performance in the I"nvestigations," and how Wittgenstein shows how language, logic and the world take care of themselves. _
