Clear and Queer Thinking: Wittgenstein's Development and His Relevance to Modern Thought
Rowman & Littlefield, 1999 - 244 pages
Laurence Goldstein gives a straightforward and lively account of some of the central themes of Wittgenstein's writings on meaning, mind, and mathematics. He does this both by drawing on Wittgenstein's work to show how his thinking developed over time and by helping the reader gain some impression of what a strange character Wittgenstein was--for how he was is intimately related to how and what he wrote.
