What Does It Look Like? : Wittgenstein's Philosophy in the Light of His Conception of Language Description: Part I Hardback
This book is the first part of a comprehensive study of Wittgenstein's conception of language description.
Describing language was no pastime occupation for the philosopher.
It was hard work and it meant struggle. It made for a philosophy that required Wittgenstein's full attention and half his life.
His approach had always been working on himself, on how he saw things.
The central claim of this book is that nothing will come of our exegetical efforts to see what Wittgenstein's later philosophy amounts to if his work on describing language is not given the place and concern it deserves.
The book shows what his philosophy might begin to look like in the light of critical questions around his interest to see the end of the day with descriptions, and these things only.
