Wittgenstein

Though he published only one book in his lifetime, Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951) was one of the most influential philosophers of his generation. The youngest son of a wealthy family, he was never comfortable with the academic environment where his ideas were so prized. By turns eccentric and reclusive, he worried about being misunderstood or influencing younger philosophers he disagreed with. Come inside and explore the world of Wittgenstein: his life, his work, and his character.
