The first life of the philosopher to be worthy of its subject ... It must have been an intensely difficult task, which has been magnificently accomplished. ( Michael Dummett, The Tablet)
Will obviously become the standard biography in English ... a vivid picture of an extraordinarily interesting human being. ( Anthony Storr, The Listener)
Ludwig Wittgenstein is universally recognized as one of the most original and influential philosophers of his age and as a personality of great magnetism and power. Not all who recognize his importance admire him or approve of it; his life and work are both surrounded by controversy. In this welcome reissue of his classic biographical study, complete with a brand-new Preface, Brian McGuinness traces the early years of this fascinating figure and examines the formative influences which shaped his extraordinary life.
