The New Wittgenstein offers a major re-evaluation of Wittgenstein's thinking. This book is a stellar collection of essays that present a significantly different portrait of Wittgenstein. The essays clarify Wittgenstein's modes of philosophical criticism and shed light on the relation between his thought and different philosophical traditions and areas of human concern. With essays by Stanley Cavell, James Conant, Cora Diamond, Hilary Putnam and John McDowell we see the emergence of a new way of understanding Wittgenstein's thought.
This is a controversial collection, with essays by the most highly regarded Wittgenstein scholars that will change the way we look at Wittgenstein's body of work. Anyone interested in gaining a new and fresh understanding of Wittgenstein's work will find this a fascinating read.
