One of the most groundbreaking works in twentieth century analytic philosophy, Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus ambitiously attempts to delineate the relationship between reality and its representation in language, logic, and propositional thought. Composed in Wittgenstein’s notoriously aphoristic style, the Tractatus is the only book Wittgenstein saw published during his lifetime. While Wittgenstein famously criticized the Tractatus and his early thought in his posthumous Philosophical Investigations, it nonetheless remains one of the most influential contributions to contemporary philosophical literature.

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 - 1951) is regarded by many as the most outstanding philosopher of the twentieth century.Language Notes:
The Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus first appeared in 1921 and was the only philosophical work that Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) published during his lifetime. Written in short, carefully numbered paragraphs of extreme compression and brilliance, it immediately convinced many of its readers and captivated the imagination of all. Its chief influence, at first, was on the Logical Positivists of the 1920s and 30s, but many other philosophers were stimulated by its philosophy of language, finding attractive, if ultimately unsatisfactory, its view that propositions were pictures of reality. Perhaps most of all, Wittgenstein himself, after his return to philosophy in the late 1920s, was fascinated by its vision of an inexpressible, crystalline world of logical relationships. The posthumous publication of other writings has, therefore, only served to reawaken interest in the Tractatus and to illuminate its more neglected aspects. In this present edition Mr. Pears and Mr. McGuinness have been able to revise their translation in the light of Wittgenstein's own suggestions and comments in his correspondence wit hC. K. Ogden about the first translation.
