Description
"If we accept Wittgenstein's word for it," Paul Strathern writes, "he is the last philosopher. In his view, philosophy in the traditional sense was finished." Ludwig Wittgenstein was a superb logician who distrusted language and sought to solve the problems of philosophy by reducing them to logic. All else-metaphysics, aesthetics, ethics, finally even philosophy itself-was excluded. They were all wrong, he argued. "What we cannot speak about," he declared, "we must pass over in silence."
