Post-analytic Tractatus

edited by Barry Stocker

This work establishes Wittgenstein's early work in the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus as an invaluable source for exploring current debate on analytic philosophy in its origins, history, limits and relations with European philosophy. Drawing together new work from leading researchers in the field - including Conant, Diamond, Monk and Glock - this timely reader offers a resource for exploring the Tractatus' connections to approaches other than logical positivism, mathematical logic and formal semantics. Examining links with the work of Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Frege, Russell, and others, the contributors consider key themes in 20th Century philosophy including symbolism and expression, limits of philosophical discourse, Kantian transcendental arguments, limits of sense and nonsense, showing and saying. Particularly timely in establishing the Tractatus as a source for comparable debates across continental and analytic philosophy, the reader should prove of value to scholars of 20th-century philosophy, Wittgenstein, and post-analytic philosophy.
