The false prison : a study of the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy  v. 1 ~ v. 2

David Pears

This is the first of two volumes which describe the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy from the Tracatus to his later writings. Part I of this volume is a survey of the whole of his work. Part II is a detailed examination of the central ideas for his early system. The second volume will cover later philosophy. The book fills a gap in the literature on Wittgenstein between brief introductions and detailed commentaries. Although necessarily selective, the doctrines and ideas chosen for detailed discussion are those which reveal the general structure of Wittgenstein's work. David Pears has taken full account of the origins of Wittgenstein's philosophy and its relation to the philosophies of his predecessors and contemporaries. But the author's main emphasis is on the internal organization of Wittgenstein's thought. Philosophy students concentrate on the details of his work but often find it difficult to see their place in the general pattern. This book presents the general and the particular within a relatively constant framework, thereby making Wittgenstein's thought more accessible to students of philosophy and to non-specialists.

This is the second of two volumes which describe the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy from the "Notebooks" and the "Tractatus" to "Philosophical Investigations" and his other later writings. This volume covers his later philosophy from 1929 onwards. It traces two lines of thought, one starting from the treatment of solipsism in the "Tractatus" and the other developing out of the early theory of language proposed in that book. The work as a whole is designed to fill a gap in the literature on Wittgenstein, and the doctrines and ideas chosen for close discussion are those which the author believes reveal the general structure of Wittgenstein's thought. Pears aims to relate the general to the particular within a clearly delineated framework, thereby hoping to make Wittgenstein more accessible to students of philosophy and to non-specialists. Volume I and II form a continuous study of Wittgenstein's philosophy, but they are designed to be read independently of each other.
