In Wittgenstein's Lasting Significance, twelve contemporary philosophers explore the issues surrounding Wittgenstein's importance and relevance to modern thought. Their articles, all of which are published here for the first time, cover the entirety of Wittgenstein's major publications: the Tracatus Logico-Philosophicus, Philosophical Investigations, On Certainty and Remarks on the Foundations of Mathematics. They discuss how much originality and continuity can be found in Wittgenstein's thought, how he relates to current traditions and movements within philosophy, and what we can learn from his conceptions of language, knowledge, mathematics and logic.
The international set of contributors are renowned for their work in both Wittgenstein studies and other fields of philosophy, making Wittgenstein's Lasting Significance an important collection for anyone interested in contemporary philosophy.

'This book takes up the cause of relativism with an enjoyable mix of zeal and careful argumentation. Koelbel(1)s book is invaluable for philosophers interested in the prospects for relativism or in problems of objectivity in general.' - Matthew McGrath in Philosophy and Phenomenological Research
'Swashbuckling Koelbel(1)s book is clear, original, and stimulating. It is a refreshingly straightforward attempt to advance a relativism that will, at the very least, require the reader to think more carefully about how to approach in a different way the data Koelbel seeks to illuminate.' - Richard Fumerton in Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
'[An] intriguing new collection ... a valuable collection of papers, many of which will no doubt become required reading for anyone seriously interested in Wittgensteinian scholarship.' - Philosophical Investigations
