Description - Wittgenstein and Scepticism by Denis McManus
Scepticism is an issue which has recently attracted much interest. With twelve specially commissioned papers by leading Wittgenstein scholars, Wittgenstein and Scepticism explores in depth how Wittgenstein's philosophy has influenced our understanding of the many forms of scepticism. This is the first volume to address the relationship between scepticism and Wittgenstein. As well as consideration of whether Wittgenstein was a sceptic himself, there is thorough discussion of topics in epistemology, metaphysics, the philosophy of mind and philosophy of language. Key questions include: how has scepticism deceived us and how has scepticism enhanced our understanding? Wittgenstein and Scepticism also features an examination of Stanley Cavell's work with an essay by Cavell responding to that evaluation. This collection is essential reading for the Wittgenstein student and specialist. Akeel Bilgrami, Stanley Cavell, James Conant, Ilham Dilman, Jane Heal, Marie McGinn, Denis McManus, Anthony Palmer, D. Z. Phillips, Louis Sass, Michael Williams and Crispin Wright
