Underlying much of Wittgenstein's later thinking was the wish to reach a correct understanding of the nature of philosophical utterances, and this wish is also discernible in his Tractatus.1 His later investigations led him to some iconoclastic ideas about what a philosophical theory is and what a philosopher does who supports his theory with an argument. Wittgenstein saw more deeply into philosophy than anyone before him; but, for the most part, he seemed to prefer to express his perceptions in...

The sixteen original essays presented here, twelve of which have never been published before, discuss Wittgenstein's work ...
