Details

This is Ray Monk’s biography of Ludwig Wittgenstein, one of the most famous philosophers of the 20th century. Though drawn to philosophy, he first obtained a degree in aeronautics at the Technical University in Berlin and subsequently went to Manchester, England, to further his aeronautical studies. There he was introduced to Bertrand Russell’s work in logic and mathematics and became increasingly obsessed with it. He later became Russell’s protégé at Cambridge but grew to despise academic life and to seek isolation in rural environs instead to work out his own thoughts on the subject that interested him.

A definitive, perceptive and lucid biography.

Softcover, 672pgs, photographs, appendix, references, select bibliography, index. Acceptable, spine creased, some marginal foxing. 195mm x 260mm
