About this book

This book is a Wittgensteinian study of concept possession and conceptual investigation in philosophy. It offers advanced introduction to Wittgenstein's philosophy and original treatment of its most crucial regions. Written as a Socratic dialogue, with a glance to Plato, it makes a bold claim about Wittgenstein's place in Western philosophy.

Reviews

'This book will range among the best current readings of Wittgenstein's philosophy. It is a well-written, perspicacious, and instructive guide to reading the later Wittgenstein...such contributions to Wittgenstein scholarship are rare and deserve to be known by professional philosophers as well as by students.' - Dr Danièle Moyal-Sharrock, School of Philosophy, Birkbeck, University of London, UK
