Understanding Wittgenstein's On Certainty

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Apr 19, 2004 - Philosophy - 250 pages
On Certainty counters what generations of philosophers have maintained, by showing that certainty is attainable, but that it is not a 'knowledgeable' notion. Understanding Wittgenstein's 'On Certainty' is an in-depth study devoted exclusively to Wittgenstein's last work, and will prove of invaluable assistance to scholars and students of Wittgenstein, in philosophy, psychology, sociology and anthropology."--BOOK JACKET.
