Tractatus logico-philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )
612 editions published between 1922 and 2014 in 23 languages and held by 5,380 libraries worldwide
"Perhaps the most important work of philosophy written in the twentieth century, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus was the only philosophical work that Ludwig Wittgenstein published during his lifetime. Written in short, carefully numbered paragraphs of extreme brilliance, it captured the imagination of a generation of philosophers. For Wittgenstein, logic was something we use to conquer a reality which is in itself both elusive and unobtainable. He famously summarized the book in the following words; 'What can be said at all can be said clearly; and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence.' David Pears and Brian McGuinness received the highest praise for their meticulous translation. The work is prefaced by Bertrand Russell's original introduction to the first English edition."--BOOK JACKET

Philosophical grammar : part I, The proposition, and its sense, part II, On logic and mathematics by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )
143 editions published between 1969 and 2009 in 7 languages and held by 1,899 libraries worldwide
Wittgenstein wrote this book during 1932-1934 - the period just before he began to dictate the Blue Book. In Part I he discusses the notions of "proposition," "sense," "language," "grammar"; what "saying something" is, what distinguishes signs form random marks or noises. Must we start with "primary" signs which need no explanation? In what sense have we a general concept of proposition or of language? The phrases "family of cases" and "family similarities," which the Investigations use, are here; and comparison brings out what is special in the later development. But although it is close to the Investigations at some points, and to the Philosophische Bemerkungen at others, the Philosophical Grammar is an independent work and discusses much that is not in either of them. It is Wittgenstein's fullest treatment of logic and mathematics in their connection with his later understanding of "proposition," "sign," and "system." In Part II he writes on logical inference and generality - criticizing views of Frege and Russell and earlier views of his own, developing his conception of "law of a series" and of "...and so on" - leading to his discussion of mathematics, which fills two fifths of the volume: the ideas of "foundations of mathematics," of cardinal numbers, of mathematical proof, and especially of inductive or recursive proofs (with reference to Skolem), which he treats to a depth and extent beyond anything he said of them elsewhere

Zettel by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

Lectures & conversations on aesthetics, psychology, and religious belief by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )
62 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,428 libraries worldwide
The first thing to be said about this book is that nothing contained herein was written by Wittgenstein himself. The notes published here are not Wittgenstein's own lecture notes, but notes taken down by students, which he neither saw nor checked. It is even doubtful if he would have approved of their publication, as least in their present form. Since, however, they deal with topics only briefly touched upon in his other published writings, and since for some time they have been circulating privately, it was thought best to publish them in a form approved by their authors

Remarks on colour by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )
44 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,183 libraries worldwide
Part III of this volume reproduces most of a MS book written in oxford in the Spring of 1950. I have left out material on "inner-outer", remarks about Shakespeare and some general observations about life; all this both was marked as discontinuous with the text and also will appear elsewhere. Part I was written in Cambridge in March 1951: it is a selection and revision of the earlier material, with few additions. It is not clear whether Part II ante- or post-dates Part III. It was part of what was written on undated loose sheets of foolscap, the rest being devoted to certainty

The Wittgenstein reader by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )
20 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and German and held by 654 libraries worldwide
From the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus to the later work on ethics and religion, this volume is the only selection of the key works of Wittgenstein -- arguably the emblematic philosopher of the twentieth century. Thematically and chronologically arranged, The Wittgenstein Reader represents the breadth, complexity, and evolution of his thought, from logical atomism to the later work on ethics, life and faith. Taken together, the selections are designed to add up to an overview of Wittgensteinʹs philosophical position, and are ideal as a single text for course use. -- Back cover
