Philosophical remarks by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

30 editions published between 1964 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 1,560 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 )

42 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 897 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

Wittgenstein and the possibility of discourse by Rush Rhees( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Four years after the publication of Ludwig Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations, Rush Rhees, one of Wittgenstein's literary executors and closest friends, began writing reflections on the masterpiece he had helped to edit. In these previously unpublished writings, Rhees offers an original critique of Wittgenstein's analogy between language and games. The volume constitutes a major contribution not only to Wittgenstein scholarship, but also to philosophical debates about the possibility of discourse, and to why conversation is central to that possibility." "For the second edition, D.Z. Phillips has inserted as a preface Rhees' article, 'The Fundamental Problems of Philosophy', first published in 1994. This paper gives a clear picture of Rhees' view of the distinctive nature of philosophical questions and of the character shown in a deep pursuit of them. Secondly, Phillips has included as an additional appendix, some of Rhees' reflections on Wittgenstein, his teacher. The book's index has also been extensively enhanced."--Jacket

Ludwig Wittgenstein, a memoir by Norman Malcolm( Book )

8 editions published between 1984 and 1992 in English and German and held by 328 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
Wittgenstein's On certainty : there-- like our life by Rush Rhees( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In explicating this text, and demonstrating its continuity with Wittgenstein's earlier work, Rhees has done a great service that will be of profound interest to students and scholars of Wittgenstein for generations to come. Rhees's comments are introduced by D.Z. Phillips, who writes a substantial and illuminating afterword that discusses current scholarship surrounding On Certainty, and its relationship to Rhees's work on this subject."--Jacket
Rush Rhees on religion and philosophy by Rush Rhees( Book )

9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discussions of Simone Weil by Rush Rhees( Book )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moral questions by Rush Rhees( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rush Rhees questions the viability of moral theories and the general claims they make in ethics. He shows how one can both be concerned with knowing what one ought to do while recognizing that one's answer is a personal one. These insights, arrived at in a distinctive style, characteristic of Rhees, are then applied to issues of life and death, human sexuality and our relations to animals. To recognize why philosophy cannot answer such questions for us is an affirmation, not a denial, of their importance."--Jacket
Religion and Wittgenstein's legacy( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection, distinguished Wittgenstein scholars examine his legacy for the philosophy of religion by examining key areas of his work: Wittgenstein's Tractatus; Frazer's 'Golden Bough'; and the implications of his later philosophy for the understanding of religion. Assessments are also provided of the philosophical and theological reception of his work. The collection provides an invaluable resource for graduate and undergraduate teaching of Wittgenstein in relation to religion."--Jacket

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

4 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in French and English and held by 12 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
