Book Description:

Published to widespread acclaim between 1980 and 1996, the monumental four-volume Analytical Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations has become the definitive reference work on Wittgenstein's masterpiece. This revised edition of Volume One, Wittgenstein: Understanding and Meaning, which itself contains two parts ("Essays" and "Exegesis 1-184"), takes into account much material that was unavailable when the first edition was written. Following G. P. Baker's death in 2002, P.M.S. Hacker has thoroughly revised both parts, rewriting many sections completely. Part One-the Essays-now includes two new essays: "Meaning and Use" and "The Recantation of a Metaphysician," while Part Two-Exegesis 1-184-has been exhaustively reworked in the light of the electronic publication of Wittgenstein's Nachlass. These revisions will ensure that this remains the essential reference work on the Philosophical Investigations for the foreseeable future.

About the Author:

G.P.Baker was a Fellow of St John’s College, Oxford from 1967 until his death in 2002. He is the co-author with P.M.S. Hacker of the first two volumes of the four-volume Analytical Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations (Blackwell, 1980–96), and with Katherine Morris of Descartes’ Dualism (1996). He also wrote numerous articles on Wittgenstein, Frege, Russell, Waismann and Descartes.


P.M.S. Hacker is the leading authority on the philosophy of Wittgenstein. He is author of the four-volume Analytical Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations, the first two volumes co-authored with G.P. Baker (Blackwell, 1980–96) and of Wittgenstein’s Place in Twentieth-century Analytic Philosophy (Blackwell, 1996). He has also written extensively on philosophy of language and philosophy of mind, most recently The Philosophical Foundations of Neuroscience (Blackwell, 2003), co-authored with M.R. Bennett.
