An essential resource for students of Wittgenstein, this collection contains faithful, in some cases expanded and corrected, versions of many important pieces never before available in a single volume, including Notes for the 'Philosophical Lecture', published here for the first time. Fifteen selections, with bi-lingual versions of those originally written in German, span the development of Wittgenstein's thought, his range of interests, and his methods of philosophical investigation. Short introductions, an index, and an updated version of Georg Henrik von Wright's The Wittgenstein Papers situate the selections within the broader context of the Wittgenstein corpus and the history of its publication.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A magnificent collection . . . the editors are to be congratulated. --Steven Gerrard, Williams College
. . .selections make available in easily accessible form some of the most interesting smaller writings of Wittgenstein's, including the longest explanation he ever gave of the nature of the philosophical enterprise. --Jaakko Hintikka, Boston University
[The editors] have usefully and skillfully assembled various writings by Wittgenstein. . . . to permit a synoptic view of his several concerns. . . . The book is an excellent source and it provides a nourishing supplement to the Investigations. --Colin McGinn, The New Republic
