Wittgenstein: A Very Short Introduction

A. C. Grayling

Very Short Introductions

  • Wittgenstein is probably the philosopher whom general readers are most interested in
  • His work revolutionized philosophy in the twentieth century, and has given rise to many new developments in the philosophy of language, logic, and philosophy of mind
  • He has also influenced fields outside philosophy, including literature, linguistics, anthropology, psychology, and sociology. This is the ideal book for people in these fields who need to know more about his views.
  • A. C. Grayling writes very accessibly for non-specialists - apart from writing books on philosophy, he has columns in the Guardian and Independent
