From the Back Cover:

This is an extensively revised second edition of Wittgenstein: Rules, Grammar and Necessity, the second volume of Baker and Hacker's renowned analytical commentary on Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. Comprising both detailed exegesis and interpretative essays, this edition includes   comprehensively revised coverage of some of the most important and widely discussed passages in Wittgenstein's entire writings, namely his intricate and controversial remarks on following rules (§§189–242). The new edition draws on the full resources of the search engine of the electronic publication of the Nachlass  and takes into account the extensive debates on the themes associated with these sections of Wittgenstein's masterwork over the last quarter of a century.

All the essays have been revised and one new essay on communitarian and individualist conceptions of rule-following has been added to the previous six. These deal with the relationship between the alternative continuations of the early draft of the Investigations; with Wittgenstein's conception of grammar and rules of grammar; with the relation between a rule and what accords with it; with the characterization of rule-following as mastery of a technique manifest in practice; with the notion of a form of life and agreements in definitions and judgements. The major essay 'Grammar and necessity' has been greatly extended. It provides an overview of Wittgenstein's revolutionary and little understood analysis of the propositions of logic, mathematics and metaphysics.

Insightful and thought-provoking, the second edition of Wittgenstein: Rules, Grammar and Necessity constitutes a key contribution to the ongoing analysis of one of the most influential philosophical works of the 20th century.

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), author of Wittgenstein, Frege and the Vienna Circle (Blackwell, 1988) 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). His recent works include The Philosophical Foundations of Neuroscience (Blackwell, 2003) and History of Cognitive Neuroscience (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008), both co-authored with M. R. Bennett. Most recently he has published Human Nature: The Categorial Framework (Blackwell, 2007), the first volume of a trilogy on human nature. Together with Joachim Schulte, he has produced the 4th edition and extensively revised translation of Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009).
