Wittgenstein and the possibility of discourse by Rush Rhees( )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,036 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 In these previously unpublished writings, Rhees offers an original critique of Wittgenstein's analogy between language and games.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

Wittgenstein's On certainty : there-- like our life by Rush Rhees( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Even Wittgenstein's admirers have been puzzled by his last work, On Certainty. Some even regard it as a lapse at the end of a distinguished career, or as a late epistemological interest that remained undeveloped. Rush Rhees, a close friend of Wittgenstein and a major interpreter of his work, shows how Wittgenstein's On Certainty concerns logic, language and reality - topics that occupied Wittgenstein from early in his career."

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

23 editions published between 1969 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 514 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

Moral questions by Rush Rhees( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 281 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 by Mario Von der Ruhr( Book )

"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
