Culture and Value: A Selection from the Posthumous Remains
Blackwell, 1998 - Philosophy - 141 pages
Wittgenstein's notebooks included reflections on all kinds of topics alongside the more strictly philosophical work - on the nature of art, religion, culture, and the nature of philosophical activity.
"Culture and Value" is a selection from these reflections. The new edition contains supplementary material which enhances the intelligibility of some of the entries in the original edition. It also includes all the variant versions to be found in the original manuscript sources (which are now given in detail). The original English translation has been extensively revised to suit the different editorial principles on which the revised edition has been produced.
