Review of Metaphysics 38 (2):408-411 (1984)

The title of this book speaks of the "entanglements" in Wittgenstein's thought. The author claims that most of Wittgenstein's later philosophical criticisms are really criticisms not of philosophical discourse as such but only of his own earlier conception of philosophy as expressed in the Tractatus. In particular she claims that the classical Kantian transcendental philosophy escapes Wittgensteinian criticism; indeed Wittgenstein's own early philosophy, far from being a kind of transcendental philosophy, as Stenius and others have argued, would fall into what Kant would consider a precritical and dogmatic kind of thinking. Wittgenstein's early thought does not, she claims, question the possibility of our thoughts' being related truly to the objective world. It merely accepts a relationship between logic and being.
