From the Publisher:
In the last years of his life, from 1949 to 1951, Wittgenstein's writings focused upon knowledge and certainty (collected together in On Certainty), upon colour concepts (in Remarks on Colour), and upon the relation between the 'inner' and 'outer', that is, between so-called mental states and bodily behavior. His writings on this third theme are gathered here for the first time.In the last years of his life, from 1949 to 1951, Wittgenstein's writings focused upon knowledge and certainty (collected together in On Certainty), upon colour concepts (in Remarks on Colour) and upon the relation between the "inner" and "outer", that is, between so-called mental states and bodily behavior. His writings on this third theme, now available in paperback, are gathered here for the first time. Wittgenstein's last weeks were a period of high creativity during which his thoughts were on a level with the best he ever produced. His variation on the classic philosophical theme of the relation between mind and body is no exception.
Author Bio
Ludwig Wittgenstein
Ludwig Wittgenstein grew up in an assimilated Jewish home, and was raised a Catholic. The last of eight children born to cultured, well-to-do parents, Wittgenstein, at 14, attended a school specializing in mathematics and the physical sciences, and then trained in mechanical engineering in Berlin before moving to England, where he would spend much of his adult life. He worked in aeronautics and became a researcher in engineering at the University of Manchester. After reading Bertrand Russell's "Principles of Mathematics", Wittgenstein decided to study logic and math at Trinity College, Cambridge, where Russell lectured. At the start of World War I, Wittgenstein returned to Austria to serve in the army. During this period, Wittgenstein wrote the manuscript that would become "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus", the only work he published during his lifetime (1921). After the war, Wittgenstein taught primary school in an Austrian village for several years before returning to Cambridge, where he taught until 1947. At several points in his life, Wittgenstein rejected academic society and retreated to secluded spots in Norway and elsewhere. Wittgenstein remains a significant philosophical figure of the years between the World Wars, even though he viewed his work as "one of the heirs of the subject that used to be called philosophy." He died of cancer.
