Book Description:

In this important study, Michael Luntley offers a compelling reading of Wittgensteins account of meaning and intentionality, based upon a unifying theme in the early and later philosophies.Rejecting readings which see a complete break between the Philosophical Investigations and the Tractatus, as well as views of Wittgensteins mature work which either lament or champion his anti-philosophical quietism, Luntley argues that Wittgensteins abiding concern was to show that the conditions for the possibility of intentionality consist not in a body of theoretical knowledge, but in perceptual knowledge, in our active capacity to see things aright.

From the Inside Flap:

In this compelling new book, Michael Luntley offers a revolutionary interpretation of the opening section of Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations. Luntley’s reading challenges the prevailing view that there is a grand sweep to Wittgenstein’s enterprise and marks a major departure from standard arguments about the nature of language, meaning, ostensive definition, and normativity. Opening Investigations introduces an improvisational conception of language use and posits that understanding language is more akin to the
open-endedness of aesthetic judgment.

In defense of his argument, Luntley provides close readings of the primary text alongside critical engagement with the most recent literature on Wittgenstein and other contemporary philosophical work. Written in accessible and engaging prose, Opening Investigations makes a powerful case for re-integrating Wittgenstein studies into contemporary philosophical debates. This book is sure to provoke lively debate among Wittgenstein scholars and will be of great interest to anyone studying Wittgenstein’s work.
