Wittgensteinian Themes: Essays 1978-1989 [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 49 (4):931-933 (1996)

Wittgensteinian Themes gathers together 14 previously published essays written towards the end of Malcolm's life. The majority of essays provide exegeses of Wittgenstein's thought. It is arguable that both Wittgensteinian exegesis and Wittgensteinian philosophy run the risk of parochialism. This collection makes a commendable effort to escape that charge. Even in the exegetical essays, issue is taken with conflicting contemporary philosophers whilst four essays are direct attacks on opposing philosophical perspectives, albeit using Wittgensteinian methods.
