Summary


In the last 15 years there has been a change in direction in our understanding of Wittgenstein; the resolute reading of him places great emphasis on his therapeutic intent and argues that the aim of Wittgensteins thought is to show how language functions.This bookargues that this is highly relevant to understanding psychotherapy.
