Summary

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was an extraordinarily original thinker, whose influence on 20th-century thinking far outside the bounds of philosophy alone. In this engaging Introduction, A. C. Grayling makes Wittgenstein's thought accessible to the general listener by explaining the nature and impact of Wittgenstein's views. He describes both his early and later philosophy, the differences and connections between them, and gives a fresh assessment of Wittgenstein's continuing influence on contemporary thought.

A nice chianti.

Brilliant, if you like your philosophy read by Hannibal Lecter. Despite that, it’s a good book.

Great content read by a robot

Kyle Munley doing an unbelievable impression of Siri. Content is great though and why not be taught Wittgenstein from a robot?

Track -ta- toose?

Why can’t the narrator pronounce the title of the only book published by the author in his lifetime?
After hearing “the TRACTATOOSE” 20 or 30 times I had to stop listening. “Tractatus” does not rhyme with “papoose”
