Linguistic Creativity: Exercises in `Philosophical Therapy' - Philosophical Studies Series 81 (Paperback)E. Fischer (author)
- We can order this
After establishing the failure of the familiar compositional approach to the problem, the book adopts a radically new start. It develops core elements of the later Wittgenstein's conception of philosophy, putting them to work to`dissolve' the problem, proving it ill-framed by clarifying the questions posing it and breaking the spell of mistaken analogies that inform it.
This sharply focused monograph thus has a dual aim: coping with a crucial problem that turns out to be a lot tougher than is generally supposed, and presenting a precise and rigorous demonstration of an unfamiliar and exciting philosophical approach.
Audience: Clearly written and lucidly structured, the book addresses professional philosophers and advanced undergraduates alike.
