Publisher's Summary

"If we accept Wittgenstein's word for it," Paul Strathern writes, "he is the last philosopher. In his view, philosophy in the traditional sense was finished." In Wittgenstein in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Wittgenstein's life and ideas and explains their influence on man's struggle to understand his existence in the world.

Hatchet Job

If you know nothing about Wittgenstein, this book is not going to be of much help, though it does provide a scanty biographical sketch of the man. The treatment of Wittgenstein's ideas is both superficial and dismissive. It is hard to actually figure out what the purpose of this book is, other than to display the author's petulance. Best intro to this philosopher is Ray Monk's biography.

Terrible

Unless you already know Wittgenstein, this title will be of little value. If you have previously encountered Wittgenstein, you will be very irritated by the authors tone--sarcastic--and the marked paucity of any real information. There is little sense of why Wittgenstein is important and none of his central observations and insights which inform much of late 20th Century philosophy, culture and language.
