His contributions to the philosophy of language, mind, meaning and psychology - as well as to logic, mathematics and epistemology - permanently altered the philosophical landscape, and his Tractatus Logico Philosophicusand Philosophical Investigationscontinue to be studied in philosophy departments around in the world. In this superb introduction and overview of Wittgenstein#xE2;#xAC;"s life and work, William Child discusses: Wittgenstein#xE2;#xAC;"s early work, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, including his account of language and thought Wittgenstein#xE2;#xAC;"s subsequent rejection of some of the central doctrines of the Tractatus Wittgenstein#xE2;#xAC;"s later philosophy intentionality and rule-following philosophy of mind and psychology in Philosophical Investigations knowledge and certainty, and Wittgenstein#xE2;#xAC;"s final work philosophy of religion the legacy and influence of Wittgenstein#xE2;#xAC;"s ideas in philosophy, and beyond.
