Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Book DescriptionPerhaps the most important work of philosophy written in the twentieth century, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus was the only philosophical work that Ludwig Wittgenstein published during his lifetime. Written in short, carefully numbered paragraphs of extreme brilliance, it captured the imagination of a generation of philosophers. For Wittgenstein, logic was something we use to conquer a reality which is in itself both elusive and unobtainable. He famously summarized the book in the following words: 'What can be said at all can be said clearly; and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence.' David Pears and Brian McGuinness received the highest praise for their meticulous translation. The work is prefaced by Bertrand Russell's original introduction to the first English edition.

Books By Author Ludwig Wittgenstein
Mythology in Our Language, Paperback (January 2017)
In 1931 Ludwig Wittgenstein wrote his famous Remarks on Frazer's "Golden Bough," published posthumously in 1967. At that time, anthropology and philosophy were in close contact - thinkers drew heavily on anthropology's theoretical terms, in order to help them explore the limits of human belief and imagination. This is a translation of his work.
Lecture on Ethics, Hardback (August 2014)
The most complete edition yet published of Wittgenstein s 1929 lecture includes a never-before published first draft and makes fresh claims for its significance in Wittgenstein s oeuvre.
