Description:

This book presents a systematic exposition of Wittgenstein's later philosophical work, emphasizing its sociological and naturalistic thrust; in his later writing, Wittgenstein stressed the priority of society over the individual and regarded individual actions and beliefs as natural phenomena; this approach led Wittgenstein toward a social theory of knowledge, but his antipathy to positive theorizing meant that he failed to develop theories based on the concepts explored in his writings; in this book, the author shows how Wittgenstein's ideas can be developed using exmples drawn from history, annthropology, and the social sciences (orange textured cloth with gold lettering, spine ends slightly bumped, previous owner's name on front endpaper; white pictorial cover with slight edgewear; otherwise a bright, clean, tight copy).
