Product Overview

The New Wittgenstein offers a major reevaluation of Wittgensteins thinking. This stellar collection of original essays by the third wave of Wittgenstein critics presents a significantly different portrait of the philosopher, not as a proponent of metaphysical theories but as an advocate of philosophy as therapy--a means of helping us grasp the essence of thought and language by attending to our everyday forms of expression. Boldly criticizing standard interpretations and offering unorthodox perspectives, these controversial essays will change the way we look at Wittgensteins entire body of work.

Praise
"The writers of the essays...succeed in using [a non-analytic reading] to throw new and unexpected light on many of the things Wittgenstein says."
"THE NEW WITTGENSTEIN records a new sense of evangelism about Wittgenstein. How much of the philosophy is new, and how much of it is Wittgenstein's, is open to debate."
From the Publisher
Annotation A distinguished troupe of thinkers, including John McDowell, Hilary Putnam, and Cora Diamond, evaluate the writings of Wittenstein with the aim of challenging orthodox interpretations of his work.
