Tractatus logico-philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

828 editions published between 1921 and 2018 in 24 languages and held by 6,232 WorldCat member 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."--Jacket

Philosophical remarks by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

160 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work contains the seeds of Wittgenstein's later philosophy of mind and of mathematics. He analyzes generality in and out of mathematics, and the notions of proof and experiment. He also dicusses both behaviorism and the verifiability principle
Lectures & conversations on aesthetics, psychology, and religious belief by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

128 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 1,793 WorldCat member 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

93 editions published between 1967 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 1,522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zettel collects fragments from Wittgenstein's work between 1929 and 1948 on issues of the mind, mathematics, and language. Show more Show less

Remarks on colour by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

65 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book comprises material on colour which was written by Wittgenstein in the last eighteen months of his life. It is one of the few documents which shows him concentratedly at work on a single philosophical issue. The principal theme is the features of different colours, of different kinds of colour (metallic colour, the colours of flames, etc.) and of luminosity--a theme which Wittgenstein treats in such a way as to destroy the traditional idea that colour is a simple and logically uniform kind of thing
Philosophical grammar : part I, the proposition, and its sense, part II, On logic and mathematics by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

64 editions published between 1974 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 984 WorldCat member 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

28 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and German and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Remarks on the philosophy of psychology by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

55 editions published between 1980 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This bilingual edition of the Remarks on the Philosophy of Psychology presents the first English translation of an essential body of Wittgenstein's work. It elaborates Wittgenstein's views on psychological concepts such as expectation, sensation, knowing how to follow a rule, and knowledge of the sensations of other persons. It also shows strong emphasis on the "anthropological" aspect of Wittgenstein's thought

82 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Preliminary studies for part II of the Philosophical investigations
Ludwig Wittgenstein : a memoir by Norman Malcolm( Book )

57 editions published between 1951 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is widely acknowledged that the most powerful influence upon the contemporary practice of philosophy has been that of Ludwig Wittgenstein, who died at Cambridge in 1951. Wittgenstein avoided publicity; little has hitherto been known of his life and character outside the small circle of his relatives and friends. One of those friends, Professor Norman Malcolm of Cornell University, has now written a remarkably vivid personal memoir of this gifted, difficult man. As a frank portrait of a tormented genius, based on many unpublished letters, it will prove of absorbing interest not only to philosophers and students of philosophy but to all, at whatever remove, who have felt the impact of his thought. The memoir is supplemented by a biographical sketch by another of Wittgenstein's friends, Professor Georg Henrik von Wright of the University of Helsingfors

Wittgenstein's Lectures on the foundations of mathematics, Cambridge, 1939 : from the notes of R.G. Bosanquet, Norman Malcolm, Rush Rhees, and Yorick Smythies by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

50 editions published between 1976 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 711 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From his return to Cambridge in 1929 to his death in 1951, Wittgenstein influenced philosophy almost exclusively through teaching and discussion. These lecture notes indicate what he considered to be salient features of his thinking in this period of his life."--Publisher's description
The Wittgenstein reader by Ludwig Wittgenstein( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member 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
