‘Nothing is so difficult as not deceiving oneself’ Wittgenstein

Wittgenstein overturned centuries of philosophical reflection on the nature of ‘the inner’, of our subjective experience and of our knowledge of self and others. Traditional conceptions of ‘the outer’, of human behaviour, were equally distorted and so too was the relation between the inner and the outer.

This highly accessible account offers an illuminating introduction to Wittgenstein’s philosophy of mind and to his conception of philosophy, showing how Wittgenstein’s examination of our use of words clarifies our notions of mind, body and behaviour.

A promising venture
THE TIMES
The virtue of these deceptively brief books is that they are the real thing
EVENING STANDARD
If you want to acquire some first-hand experience of philosophy and democracy you would do well to read this welcome series
TIMES HIGHER EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT
The books should improve the cultural circulation of philosophy by their style as well as their substance
