Philosophical grammar : part I, the proposition, and its sense, part II, On logic and mathematics by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

96 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wittgenstein wrote this book during 1932-1934 - the period just before he began to dictate the Blue Book. In Part I he discusses the notions of "proposition," "sense," "language," "grammar"; what "saying something" is, what distinguishes signs form random marks or noises. Must we start with "primary" signs which need no explanation? In what sense have we a general concept of proposition or of language? The phrases "family of cases" and "family similarities," which the Investigations use, are here; and comparison brings out what is special in the later development. But although it is close to the Investigations at some points, and to the Philosophische Bemerkungen at others, the Philosophical Grammar is an independent work and discusses much that is not in either of them. It is Wittgenstein's fullest treatment of logic and mathematics in their connection with his later understanding of "proposition," "sign," and "system." In Part II he writes on logical inference and generality - criticizing views of Frege and Russell and earlier views of his own, developing his conception of "law of a series" and of " ... and so on"--Leading to his discussion of mathematics, which fills two fifths of the volume: the ideas of "foundations of mathematics," of cardinal numbers, of mathematical proof, and especially of inductive or recursive proofs (with reference to Skolem), which he treats to a depth and extent beyond anything he said of them elsewhere
On certainty by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

Lectures & conversations on aesthetics, psychology, and religious belief by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

98 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 1,766 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first thing to be said about this book is that nothing contained herein was written by Wittgenstein himself. The notes published here are not Wittgenstein's own lecture notes, but notes taken down by students, which he neither saw nor checked. It is even doubtful if he would have approved of their publication, as least in their present form. Since, however, they deal with topics only briefly touched upon in his other published writings, and since for some time they have been circulating privately, it was thought best to publish them in a form approved by their authors
Philosophical remarks by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

84 editions published between 1964 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work contains the seeds of Wittgenstein's later philosophy of mind and of mathematics. He analyzes generality in and out of mathematics, and the notions of proof and experiment. He also dicusses both behaviorism and the verifiability principle
Ludwig Wittgenstein, a memoir by Norman Malcolm( Book )

67 editions published between 1958 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 1,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is widely acknowledged that the most powerful influence upon the contemporary practice of philosophy has been that of Ludwig Wittgenstein, who died at Cambridge in 1951. Wittgenstein avoided publicity; little has hitherto been known of his life and character outside the small circle of his relatives and friends. One of those friends, Professor Norman Malcolm of Cornell University, has now written a remarkably vivid personal memoir of this gifted, difficult man. As a frank portrait of a tormented genius, based on many unpublished letters, it will prove of absorbing interest not only to philosophers and students of philosophy but to all, at whatever remove, who have felt the impact of his thought. The memoir is supplemented by a biographical sketch by another of Wittgenstein's friends, Professor Georg Henrik von Wright of the University of Helsingfors
Remarks on colour by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

58 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 1,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Part III of this volume reproduces most of a MS book written in oxford in the Spring of 1950. I have left out material on "inner-outer", remarks about Shakespeare and some general observations about life; all this both was marked as discontinuous with the text and also will appear elsewhere. Part I was written in Cambridge in March 1951: it is a selection and revision of the earlier material, with few additions. It is not clear whether Part II ante- or post-dates Part III. It was part of what was written on undated loose sheets of foolscap, the rest being devoted to certainty
Letters to Russell, Keynes, and Moore by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

19 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and German and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Wittgenstein reader by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

35 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus to the later work on ethics and religion, this volume is the only selection of the key works of Wittgenstein -- arguably the emblematic philosopher of the twentieth century. Thematically and chronologically arranged, The Wittgenstein Reader represents the breadth, complexity, and evolution of his thought, from logical atomism to the later work on ethics, life and faith. Taken together, the selections are designed to add up to an overview of Wittgensteinʹs philosophical position, and are ideal as a single text for course use. -- Back cover

Wittgenstein's Lectures on the foundations of mathematics, Cambridge, 1939 : from the notes of R.G. Bosanquet, Norman Malcolm, Rush Rhees, and Yorick Smythies by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

Tractatus logico-philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

29 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Perhaps the most important work of philosophy written in the twentieth century, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus was the only philosophical work that Ludwig Wittgenstein published during his lifetime. 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."--Jacket
Wittgenstein's Tractatus : an introduction by G. E. M Anscombe( Book )

2 editions published between 1981 and 1996 in Undetermined and English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is one of the most important books of the twentieth century. It influenced philosophers and artists alike and continues to fascinate readers today. It offers rigorous arguments but clothes them in enigmatic pronouncements. Wittgenstein himself said that his book is "strictly philosophical and simultaneously literary, and yet there is no blathering in it." This introduction considers both the philosophical and the literary aspects of the Tractatus and shows how they are related. It also shows how the work fits into Wittgenstein's philosophical development and the tradition of analytic philosophy, arguing strongly for the vigor and significance of that tradition."--Jacket
Wittgenstein by Robert J Fogelin( Book )

2 editions published between 1976 and 1996 in Undetermined and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Fogelin has provided an authoritative critical evaluation of both the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations, making these key texts accessible to the general reader
The false prison : a study of the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy by David Pears( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is the second of two volumes which describe the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy from the Notebooks and the Tractatus to Philosophical Investigations and his other later writings. This volume covers his later writings from 1929 onwards. The work as a whole fills a gap in the literature on Wittgenstein between brief introductions and long commentaries. The doctrines and ideas chosen for close discussion are those which reveal the general structure of Wittgenstein's thought. Readers of Wittgenstein concentrate on the details of his work, but often find it difficult to see their place in the overall pattern. This book relates the general to the particular within a clearly delineated framework, thereby making Wittgenstein more accessible to students of philosophy and to non-specialists
