Ludwig Wittgenstein: A Memoir

£14.99

Product description

Ludwig Wittgenstein remains one of the most powerful influences on contemporary philosophy, yet he shunned publicity and was an extremely private man. His friend Norman Malcolm (himself an eminent philosopher) wrote this remarkably vivid personal memoir of Wittgenstein, first published in 1958 to wide acclaim for its moving and truthful portrait of the gifted yet difficult man. The volume also features a biographical sketch by Georg Henrik von Wright, another leading philosopher and friend of Wittgenstein. The book cover has some light general marks and dust soiling noticeable in white areas; some surface wear to cover edges and down spine sides; light rubbing to corners; creased across the front right corner; smaller crease on the rear lower corner. Interior is in very good condition. Former owner's name written in black ink to the top of the half-title. The frontispiece is a b/w photograph of Wittgenstein in the Moores' garden at Cambridge, June 1937.
