Wittgenstein's Metaphysics by John W. Cook

Book Description

Wittgenstein's Metaphysics offers an interpretation of the fundamental ideas of Ludwig Wittgenstein. It takes issue with the conventional view that after 1930 Wittgenstein rejected the philosophy of the Tractatus and developed a wholly new conception of philosophy. By tracing the evolution of Wittgenstein's ideas Cook shows that they are neither as original nor as difficult as is often supposed. Wittgenstein was essentially an empiricist, and the difference between his early views (as set forth in the Tractatus) and the later views (as expounded in the Philosophical Investigations) lies chiefly in the fact that after 1930 he replaced his version of reductionism with something subtler. Nevertheless, he ended where he began, as an empiricist armed with a theory of meaning.

Morality and Cultural Differences by John W. Cook Morality and Cultural Differences, Paperback (December 2002)

Examining the arguments for and against moral relativism, this text claims that not only have anthropologists failed in their attempt to support relativism with evidence of cultural differences, but that moral absolutists have been equally unsuccessful in their attempts to refute it.

Wittgenstein, Empiricism and Language by John W. Cook Wittgenstein, Empiricism and Language, Hardback (October 1999)

This study aims to expose the ways in which Wittgenstein's philosophical views have been misunderstood, including the failure to recognize the reductionist character of Wittgenstein's work,his attack on G. E. Moore's philosophy, and the unacknowledged influence of Russell.
