This moving and authoritative portrait of Ludwig Wittgenstein--one of the most powerful influences on contemporary philosophy--treats Wittgenstein the man, his unusual teaching methods, and his modes of thought and expression as seen through the eyes of Norman Malcolm, first as a student and later as a close personal friend. This new edition contains the complete text of fifty-seven letters written by Wittgenstein to Malcolm over a period of eleven years. Appearing in print for the first time in their entirety, these letters serve to illuminate Wittgenstein as a warm and concerned friend as he gives advice, teases, and offers sympathy.

About the Authors:
Norman Malcolm was formerly Professor of Philosophy at Cornell University.
Georg Henrik von Wright succeeded Wittgenstein as Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge and is one of his literary executors.

Review:

`Review from previous edition 'A reader does not need to care about philosophy to be excited by Mr Malcolm's book; it is about Wittgenstein as a man, and its interest is human interest'.'
(From a review of the first edition in the Manchester Guardian)
