There is some good back story to his teaching days, but this is mostly tawdry and wildly speculative.
What did you love best about Wittgenstein?
I wanted to know more about Wittgenstein the person, as well as his philosophy and his place in history, but I didn't want to read a lengthy biography or a philosophy textbook. This was a good compromise. He's a pretty inspiring individual in many ways, and the author clearly responded to that without going overboard. As for the philosophy, I'll probably re-listen to the chapter(s) that describe the two stages of his philosophy and how they fit into the thought of the times.
What about Jim Denison’s performance did you like?
He's a good reader with a good European delivery. His German was good, but his French was mangled. But overall a very good reading and good audio quality.
Any additional comments?
For me this was time well spent, and not a difficult listen.
