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. Contributors: Stanley Cavell, David Cerbone, James Conant, Alice Crary, Cora Diamond, David Finkelstein, Juliette Floyd, P.M.S. Hacker, John McDowell, Hilary Putnam, Rupert Read, Martin Stone, Edward Witherspoon. *Author: Crary, Alice Marguerite/ Read, Rupert J. *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 416 *Publication Date: 2000/06/15 *Language: English *Dimensions: 7.00 x 9.99 x 0.99 inches

Praise

Philosopher's Magazine
"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." - Jaroslav Peregrin Winter 2001

Times Literary Supplement
"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." - William Child 05/11/2001
