Written in short, carefully numbered paragraphs of extreme brilliance, it captured the imagination of a generation of philosophers. For Wittgenstein, logic was something we use to conquer a reality which is in itself both elusive and unobtainable. He famously summarized the book in the following words; 'What can be said at all can be said clearly; and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence.' David Pears and Brian McGuinness received the highest praise for their meticulous translation. The work is prefaced by Bertrand Russell's original introduction to the first English edition."--BOOK JACKET+-+135907069545925ocn031434304book19950.66Wittgenstein, LudwigLudwig Wittgenstein, Cambridge letters : correspondence with Russell, Keynes, Moore, Ramsey, and SraffaRecords and correspondenceThe discovery, in various quarters, of hitherto unknown letters exchanged between Wittgenstein and the chief of his Cambridge friends provides the basis for this new and profoundly revealing collection. Wittgenstein appears in turn shy and affectionate, fierce and censorious, happy to collaborate and sure of his own judgement. Four quarrels and four reconciliations are documented. Wittgenstein's struggles to publish his Tractatus may be followed, as well as his retreat from the world, his being wooed back to philosophy by Keynes and Ramsey, and his plans to leave philosophy. The accompanying editorial notes are based on archival material not previously explored. Taken together, the correspondence provides an intriguing insight into Wittgenstein's life and thought, and will be essential reading for students and scholars+-+006546681541511ocn010923782book19840.73Frege, GottlobCollected papers on mathematics, logic, and philosophy36211ocn745003225file20110.70McGuinness, BrianFriedrich Waismann-- Causality and logical positivismFriedrich Waismann (1896 1959) was one of the most gifted students and collaborators of Moritz Schlick. Accepted as a discussion partner by Wittgenstein from 1927 on, he functioned as spokesman for the latter 's ideas in the Schlick Circle, until Wittgenstein 's contact with this most faithful interpreter was broken off in 1935 and not renewed when exile took Waismann to Cambridge. Nonetheless, at Oxford, where he went in 1939, and eventually became Reader in Philosophy of Mathematics (changing later to Philosophy of Science), Waismann made important and independent contributions to analytic p+-+95026255943559ocn003913347book19780.73Kaufmann, FelixThe infinite in mathematics : logico-mathematical writings+-+429352275434910ocn020094273book19890.76Frongia, GuidoWittgenstein : a bibliographical guideBibliography34212ocn006092640book19800.76Hahn, HansEmpiricism, logic, and mathematics : philosophical papersHistory+-+601562275432933ocn145146294book10120.79Wittgenstein, LudwigWittgenstein in Cambridge : letters and documents, 1911-1951Records and correspondenceThis volume collects the most substantial correspondence and documents relating to Wittgenstein's long association with Cambridge between the years 1911 and his death in 1951, including the letters he exchanged with his most illustrious Cambridge contemporaries Russell, Keynes, Moore, and Ramsey (and previously published as Cambridge Letters).

Is common language conceptually prior to idiolectics? What is a theory of meaning? Does constructivism provide a satisfactory account of mathematics? What are indefinitely extensible concepts? Can we change the past? These are only some of the very important questions addressed here. Both the papers written by the contributors and Dummett's replies provide a great wealth of stimulating ideas for those who currently do research in the respective areas touched upon without making the reading exceedingly tedious. This feature, common to most of the papers in this book, makes it possible to use the material presented in undergraduate courses at university level+-+89537874252326ocn014166680book19860.81Mach, ErnstPrinciples of the theory of heat : historically and critically elucidatedHistory+-+91577227542147ocn016755712book19870.86Hegselmann, RainerUnified science : the Vienna circle monograph series originally edited by Otto Neurath, now in an English edition+-+49397227542116ocn029564472book19940.86Waismann, FriedrichEthics and the will : essaysHistoryThe contribution made by the Vienna Circle to ethics and the philosophy of action is increasingly being recognized. Here two previously unpublished pieces by Moritz Schlick and his pupil Josef Schächter set the scene, showing how ethics is not dependent on metaphysics but does require a sensitivity to strata of language other than that of science. Schächter (author of Prolegomena to a Critical Grammar, also in the VCC, and now doyen of educational philosophers in Israel) further develops this ethical theme in a too little known study of pessimistic dicta that he published in 1938. He succeeds (without ever assenting to it) in giving sense to the idea that it were better for a man never to have been born. The bulk of the book is devoted to two works by Friedrich Waismann, probably written not long after his emigration to England, also in 1938. There are a paper on ethics and science, which defends the Wittgensteinian view that morality is something one cannot defend, but only profess, and (itself more than half the volume) a treatise on will and motive, where the influence of Wittgenstein is mediated by that of Ryle and where many points in modern theory of action are anticipated with the author's usual sensitivity both to language and to the complexity of the human situation. (Joachim Schulte recently edited these two works in the original German, otherwise they have remained unpublished). This valuable addition to the VCC should illuminate both the history of the Circle and the kind of reflection on language and action which dominates the practical philosophy of our own day+-+69217874252093ocn030026523book19940.88Menger, KarlReminiscences of the Vienna Circle and the Mathematical ColloquiumHistoryIndeed the other Viennese group described here is the Mathematical Colloquium, founded by himself, whose Proceedings (still read) show it to have been a power-house of ideas. There are also valuable chapters on philosophy and mathematics in the Poland of the 20's and 30's and the U.S. of the 30's and 40's. The memoirs devote particular attention to Wittgenstein (with whose family Menger was independently acquainted) and to Godel, whom he was instrumental in bringing to America. The genesis of Menger's own writings on philosophy is also described and the work abounds in mathematical examples lucidly applied to that subject. This volume (which can now be put alongside the two by Menger already published in the Vienna Circle Collection) gives an unequalled impression of the fruitful interdisciplinarity of the tradition to which he partly belonged and partly created. It testifies both to Menger's power to inspire and to the critical eye he always turned on even the philosophers he most approved of+-+K66278742516817ocn020043557book19890.81Wittgenstein, LudwigLogisch-philosophische Abhandlung : Kristische Edition = Tractatus logico-philosophicus13816ocn032157329book19880.31McGuinness, BrianWittgenstein : a lifeBiography+-+0065466815+-+0065466815Fri Mar 21 15:59:45 EDT 2014batch28959
