Wittgenstein is the most influential twentieth century philosopher in the English-speaking world. In the Philosophical Investigations, his most important work, he introduces the famous 'private language argument' which changed the whole philosophical view of language. Wittgenstein and the Philosophical Investigations introduces and assesses:
* Wittgenstein's life, and its connection with his thought
* the text of the Philosophical Investigations
* the importance of Wittgenstein's work to contemporary philosophy.

About the Author:

Marie McGinn teaches Philosophy at the University of York.

Review:

A beautifully lucid guide through the main themes of the Investigations ... The movement of Wittgenstein's thought, how the different topics hang together, why they come in the order they do--are all made clearer than any other discussion I know.
–Jane Heal, St. John's College, Cambridge

McGinn's efforts to display the anti-theoretical thrust of Wittgenstein's thinking are effective ... [She] makes the Investigations more accessible to (advanced) undergraduates than anything else out there. For graduate students ... it could, coupled with the Investigations, become the standard introduction.
