Description - Wittgenstein in America by Timothy G. McCarthy

This text is a collection of essays exploring the legacy of Wittgenstein's work in contemporary American philosophy. The contributors take a variety of approaches to Wittgenstein, discussing such topics as rule-following, realism about mathematics, the method of the Tractatus, the relationship between style and content in Wittgenstein, and his distinction between sense and nonsense. Wittgenstein is discussed in relation to subsequent philosophers such as Quine and Kripke.
