Wittgenstein's 'Philosophical Investigations'
Drawing on courses he taught at Cambridge University in 2007 and 2008, Ahmed discusses parts of Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein's (1889-1951) final work that undergraduate students in the second or third year are likely to encounter in a first course on him. In particular, he looks at its criticism of his earlier Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, the material on rule-following, and material on private language. His sections cover the Augustinian picture, family resemblance and the ideal of precision, meaning and understanding, and privacy. A final chapter considers the work's reception and influence.
