Wittgenstein's poker : the story of a ten-minute argument between two great philosophers by David Edmonds( Book )

38 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On October 25, 1946, in Cambridge, England, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Karl Popper came face-to-face for the first and only time. The encounter lasted just ten minutes, and did not go well. Their loud and aggressive confrontation became the stuff of instant legend. Almost immediately, rumors spread around the world that the two great philosophers had come to blows, armed with red-hot pokers. Twenty years later, when Popper wrote an account of the incident, he portrayed himself as the victor, provoking intense disagreement. Everyone present seems to have remembered events differently. What really happened in those ten minutes? And what does the violence of this brief exchange tell us about these two men, modern philosophy, and the significance of language in solving our philosophical problems? Wittgenstein's poker is an engaging mix of philosophy, history, biography, and literary detection

Rousseau's dog : two great thinkers at war in the Age of Enlightenment by David Edmonds( Book )

25 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1766 Jean-Jacques Rousseau--philosopher, novelist, composer, educational and political provocateur--was on the run from intolerance, persecution, and enemies who decried him as a danger to society. David Hume, the foremost philosopher in the English language, was universally lauded as a paragon of decency. Putting himself under Hume's protection, Rousseau, with his beloved dog, Sultan, took refuge in England. Yet within months, the exile had accused Hume of plotting to dishonor him. The violence of Hume's response was totally out of character; the resulting furor involved leading figures in British and French society, and became the talk of intellectual Europe. Here, journalists Edmonds and Eidinow probe the bitter and very public quarrel that turned the most influential thinkers of the Age of Enlightenment into the deadliest of foes. The result is a story of celebrity and its price, of shameless spin, of destroyed reputations and shattered friendships.--From publisher description

For two months in 1972, the world watched, spellbound, as Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky dueled for supremacy in chess. The match was as much about chess as it was a contest between the dysfunctional, manipulative Fischer and tournament officials; between the free-spirited Spassky who distrusted the Soviet system and the entrenched Soviet bureaucracy that grudgingly supported him; and between the ideologies of communism and free enterprise
