About the Author

Sir Anthony Kenny was formerly Pro-Vice-Chancellor at Oxford University, Master of Balliol College, Oxford and Warden of Rhodes House, Oxford. He was also President of the British Academy, Chairman of the Board of the British Library and a Trustee of Wittgenstein?s copyrights. He is the author or editor of more than 30 books, including Wittgenstein (Revised Edition, 2006), A Brief History of Western Philosophy (1998) and The Legacy of Wittgenstein (1984), all published by Blackwell.


"This excellent selection of key passages from the voluminous writings of Wittgenstein for the first time allows him to be read systematically and continuously. I am sure it will be invaluable in the classroom and give much pleasure and enlightenment to the general reader." Rom Harre, University of Oxford and Georgetown University Anthony Kenny and Blackwell's have done it again. With an extended preface and an added chapter on the 'New Wittgensteinians', especially for undergraduate syllabi that aim to cover the breadth of Wittgenstein's philosophical concerns, this new edition of Kenny's astute selections is required reading. Richard Kortum, East Tennessee State University
