Wittgenstein by Robert J. Fogelin

Book Description

No serious philosopher or student of philosophy can afford to neglect Wittgenstein's work. Professor Fogelin provides an authoritative critical evaluation of both the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations, enabling the reader to come to grips with these difficult yet key works. Fogelin explains Wittgenstein's attempt in the Tractatus to combine a picture theory of propositional structure, and also explores Wittgenstein's own criticisms of the Tractarian synthesis. He gives particular attention to topics in the philosophy of language, logic, psychology and the foundations of mathematics, examining Wittgenstein's work on these fields and arguing that Wittgenstein's criticisms in these areas form the basis for a radically new standpoint in philosophy.

Evidence and Meaning by Robert J. Fogelin Evidence and Meaning, Paperback (April 2013)

The first part of the study is concerned with the role of warrant statements in theoretical discourse; while the second part concerns their role in practical discourse. Also examined are necessity, probability, knowing, seeing and the complex of terms which allow us tointroduce an argumentative structure into discourse.

Taking Wittgenstein at His Word by Robert J. Fogelin Taking Wittgenstein at His Word, Hardback (November 2009)

Draws out the therapeutic aspects of Wittgenstein's later work by examining his account of rule-following and how he applies the idea in the philosophy of mathematics. This book offers a corrective to the frequent misunderstanding that Wittgenstein's 'paradox of interpretation' is a paradox about meaning.

Defense of Hume on Miracles by Robert J. Fogelin Defense of Hume on Miracles, Paperback (January 2005)

Since its publication in the mid-eighteenth century, Hume's discussion of miracles has been the target of severe and often ill-tempered attacks. This book offers a systematic response to these attacks. Arguing that these criticisms have rested on misreadings, it begins by providing a narrative of the way Hume's argument actually unfolds.
