Michael Hymers is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Dalhousie University, Halifax.
"A wide-ranging and extraordinarily clear introduction to Wittgenstein's treatment of central philosophical problems about the nature of science, logic, language, and knowledge, the relationship between his earlier and his later philosophy, and his therapeutic conception of philosophical method." - David Stern, University of Iowa "This book is a clear and sensible introduction to Wittgenstein's philosophy, which, rightly, gives pride of place to his extraordinary conception of the subject: his striving for conceptual clarity instead of new philosophical theories. At a time when uncritical emulation of scientific methodology is common in philosophy, this accessible presentation of Wittgenstein's unorthodox methodological views should be particularly salutary and useful to students." - Severin Schroeder, University of Reading
