Rezensionen
'Kenny's book remains the best general introduction toWittgenstein's work as a whole. Careful, clear, persistent inits pursuit of puzzles, but always stylish and accessible, it willtake even a beginner deep into the most difficult issues raised byWittgenstein's texts, while still being helpful andprovocative to advanced students and scholars.'
--Michael Morris, University of Sussex

'...Sir Anthony's remains the most useful criticalintroduction to Wittgenstein's life and thought. The updatedintroduction is more than welcome. Among students and, especially,teachers of Wittgenstein, the long-awaited re-release of thisclassic is cause for celebration.'
--Richard Kortum, East Tennessee State University
