Philosophical remarks by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

155 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,931 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
Philosophical grammar : part I, the proposition, and its sense, part II, On logic and mathematics by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

182 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,928 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
Lectures & conversations on aesthetics, psychology, and religious belief by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

140 editions published between 1966 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,806 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
Zettel by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

Remarks on colour by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

107 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 8 languages and held by 1,389 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

Remarks on the philosophy of psychology by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

This bilingual edition of the Remarks on the Philosophy of Psychology presents the first English translation of an essential body of Wittgenstein's work. It elaborates Wittgenstein's views on psychological concepts such as expectation, sensation, knowing how to follow a rule, and knowledge of the sensations of other persons. It also shows strong emphasis on the "anthropological" aspect of Wittgenstein's thought

Ludwig Wittgenstein : a memoir by Norman Malcolm( Book )

56 editions published between 1951 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 730 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

Tractatus logico-philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

38 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 384 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
