Although Wittgenstein claimed that his first book, the "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus", was essentially an ethical work, it has been viewed insistently as a purely logical one. His later work, "Philosophical Investigations", is generally seen as presenting totally different ideas from his earlier writings. In this book, Michael Hodges shows how Wittgenstein's later work emerged from his earlier Tractatus, and he unifies the early philosophy, both its well-known logical aspects and the lesser known ethical dimensions, in terms of the notion of transcendence. Hodges studies the "Tractatus" in light of Wittgenstein's own claim that the "Philosophical Investigations" can only be understood when read against the background of the "Tractatus". At the heart of an understanding of the earlier work is the idea of transcendence which structures both Wittgenstein's logical and ethical insights. Seen in terms of this notion, the rigorous unity of Wittgenstein's early thinking becomes apparent and the gestalt shift to the later philosophy comes clearly into focus. Michael P. Hodges is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University.
