The final philosophical work by Malcolm (1911-90), a distinguished philosopher at Cornell until his retirement, draws together remarks made by the German philosopher throughout his life and in many different contexts that illuminate his attitude toward religion.

From the Back Cover:

Malcolm first draws together an illuminating collection of remarks on religion made by Wittgenstein at different stages of his life and in various contexts. He explores some of the ways in which Wittgenstein was attracted to religious modes of thinking and speculates about the barriers that kept him from full religious commitment. He concludes by offering four analogies between Wittgenstein's philosophical methods and his religious attitudes generally.

Review:

'The whole volume stands as a moving tribute to a fruitful intellectual friendship.' - Times Higher Education Supplement

'A valuable and insightful debate on the motivations and directions underlying Wittgenstein's thought, and a welcome and needed addition to Wittgensteinian commentary.' - Choice
