Shelves: philosophy
best introductory book on Wittgenstein. this is particularly true of chapters 1 and 2. it is clear and accessible.
chapter 3 is also helpful in terms of LW's philosophy of religion.
chapters 4-5 are less about LW. they are also less interesting. they are a composite of criticisms of LW, adherents to his thought, and little nuggets about him, but nothing essential to understanding his thought (as it's presented in this book) that wasn't already in the first chapters.
