Details

Ludwig Wittgenstein is universally recognised in the Anglo-Saxon world of philosophy and of letters generally both as one of the most original and influential philosophers of his age and as a personality and character of great magnetism and power. Not all who recognise his importance admire him or approve of it. His life and work are both subjects of controversy. This book is based on access to all documents, private papers and letters known to exist. In the years in England (1908-13) Wittgenstein found his true vocation. The book examines carefully the things Wittgenstein considered really important in life – his relationships (often stormy) with his friends, his favourite books (which he knew almost by heart) and his music.
