MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an impressive book: learned, judicious yet provocative, and very readable. It will interest not only Wittgenstein aficionados, but also a much wider readership. It provides a rapid and remarkably helpful orientation for readers who want to know more about Wittgenstein but have trouble navigating around the forbiddingly large and difficult literature. The survey of the extraordinary range of approaches is wide-ranging but well chosen, nearly always focussing on the most significant figures, but giving enough depth and detail of coverage to avoid the dangers that come with an overly schematic summary. Biletzki successfully steers between the Scylla of overly technical philosophical argumentation and the Charybdis of popular oversimplification."
(David G. Stern, Associate Professor, University of Iowa, Editor (with Hans Sluga), The Cambridge Companion to Wittgenstein)
