Abstract:

Peter Heath's insightful annotations prove that the central concern of 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' and 'Through the Looking-Glass' is with the bounds of sense and the limitation of reason. Heath takes the reader on a fascinating walk through the thickets of philosophical blunders, logical fallacies, conceptual confusions and linguistic breakthroughs that decorate the landscape of Alice's world. As a result, Lewis Carroll is elevated to a place alongside such eminent philosophers as Bertrand Russell and Wittgenstein.
