Part I of this volume is a survey of the whole of his work- Part II is a detailed examination of the central ideas for his early system.

The second volume will cover later philosophy. The book fills a gap in the literature on Wittgenstein between brief introductions and detailed commentaries. Although necessarily selective, the doctrines and ideas chosen for detailed discussion are those which reveal the general structure of Wittgensteins work. David Pears has taken full account of the origins of Wittgensteins philosophy and its relation to the philosophies of his predecessors and contemporaries. But the authors main emphasis is on the internal organization of Wittgensteins thought. Philosophy students concentrate on the details of his work but often find it difficult to see their place in the general pattern.

This book presents the general and the particular within a relatively constant framework, thereby making Wittgensteins thought more accessible to students of philosophy and to non-specialists.
