Publisher's Summary

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was an extraordinarily original thinker, whose influence on twentieth-century thinking far outside the bounds of philosophy alone. In this engaging Introduction, A.C. Grayling makes Wittgenstein's thought accessible to the general listener by explaining the nature and impact of Wittgenstein's views. He describes both his early and later philosophy, the differences and connections between them, and gives a fresh assessment of Wittgenstein's continuing influence on contemporary thought.

A clear introduction

A clear and great book to introduce Wittgenstein to all the audiences. I had enjoyed it during all the listening.

Strange Narration Style

Any additional comments?

The narration is very robotic with unnatural inflection. The author's name is introduced incorrectly at the start of the recording, which doesn't instil confidence.
