I m not sure about this book It tries to explain wittgenstein However, I m not sure if it did Or if it did a good job. Grayling wrote a rather even handed treatment of Wittgenstein s early and late philosophy although it s rather obvious that Grayling downplays Wittgenstein s influence on contemporary philosophy,and disagrees with most if not all of Wittgenstein s late philosophy Regardless of his disagreement, Grayling obviously understands Wittgenstein s philosophy, and is able to present his ideas in an economic manner His abilities as an educator show in his attempt to introduce the reader to basic lo Grayling wrote a rather even handed treatment of Wittgenstein s early and late philosophy although it s rather obvious that Grayling downplays Wittgenstein s influence on contemporary philosophy,and disagrees with most if not all of Wittgenstein s late philosophy Regardless of his disagreement, Grayling obviously understands Wittgenstein s philosophy, and is able to present his ideas in an economic manner His abilities as an educator show in his attempt to introduce the read
