Review of Metaphysics 20 (3):557-557 (1967)

During the past decade no philosopher in the Anglo-Saxon world has been so thoroughly discussed, explicated and criticized as has been Wittgenstein. The Tractatus and the Tractarian period have been the subject of numerous articles, more than a half dozen books and commentaries, and an anthology of articles. Now Pitcher has collected some of the best articles that have been primarily concerned with the Investigations. Starting with Quinton's overview excerpted from his "Contemporary British Philosophy," and the important critical notices by Strawson, Malcolm and Feyerabend, the anthology includes several important papers focusing on such themes as family resemblances, private language, other minds, and the philosophy of mathematics and logic. The anthology is one of a new series of Modern Studies in Philosophy under the general editorship of Amélie Rorty.—R. J. B.
