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.

Lively narration

Where does Wittgenstein rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A very good introduction to Wittgenstein that assumes no knowledge of philosophy on the part of the reader. Works well in audio format. I listened to this on a motorcycle trip. OK, it is a philosophy book but I like philosophy.

What about Kyle Munley’s performance did you like?

Lively narration.
