The Voices of Wittgenstein brings for the first time, in both the original German and in English translation, over one hundred short essays in philosophical logic and the philosophy of mind. This text is of key historical importance to understanding Wittgenstein's philosophical thought and development in the 1930's. Transcribed from the papers of Friedrich Waismann and dating from 1932 to 1935, the majority are highly important dictations by Wittgenstein to Waismann. It also includes texts of redrafted material by Waismann, closely based on these dictations.

an absolutely fascinating collection of essays.What makes these writings important is that they all originate from the early 1930s. Hence, they may cast greater light on the nature, extent and cause of the change of mind, such that there was, that led Wittgenstein fro his 'early' to his 'later' thinking. Yet decisive or not, this material will surely add richness to the debate.' Daniel Hutto, British Journal for the History of Philosophy
