0 Reviews
At a time when interest in the Wittgensteinian tradition has quickened, this volume brings together fourteen essays by Norman Malcolm, a prominent philosopher who studied with Wittgenstein. Including some of Malcolm's last work, the papers address key aspects of Wittgenstein's legacy. Wittgensteinian Themes demonstrates the clarity and accessibility for which Malcolm's writing is renowned. Like most of his work, the essays examine basic issues in philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. Himself a noted philosopher, Georg Henrik von Wright has chosen the papers included here and appended to the volume his eloquent Memorial Address for Norman Malcolm, delivered at King's College, London, in November 1990. Professor von Wright has also supplied a brief preface.
