Item Description...
Ludwig Wittgenstein's On Certainty was finished just before his death in 1951 and is a running commentary on three of G.E. Moore's greatest epistemological papers. In the early 1930s, Moore had written a lengthy commentary on Wittgenstein, anticipating some of the issues Wittgenstein would discuss in On Certainty. The philosophical relationship between these two great philosophers and their overlapping, but nevertheless differing, views is the subject of this book. Both defended the existence of certainty and thus opposed any form of skepticism. However, their defenses and conceptions of certainty differed widely, as did their understanding of the nature of skepticism and how best to combat it. Stroll's book contains a careful and critical analysis of their differing approaches to a set of fundamental epistemological problems.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Finally, someone really delves into Wittgenstein..  May 2, 2001
Stroll's book is a must-read for anyone remotely interested in the present status of present-day philosophy, particularly with the plethora of authors trying to make a quick dollar on new-age neurophilosophy. Stroll aptly cuts to the core of Wittgenstein's opus "On Certainty" and lays the main thrusts of his arguments open to the general public.

Stroll begins by walking the reader through Moore's two papers that advanced his famous "This is a hand" arguments. Stroll demonstrates Moore's errors that then lead the reader straight into Wittgenstein's exploration of certainty; this is a rather seamless and painless experience for many who have ever attempted to read Wittgenstein and become hopelessly lost.

Stroll then expands on Wittgenstein and fully develops his truly important revelations regarding certainty and the true nature of doubt. I have yet to see any from the sceptical tradition develop a good answer to the Wittgenstein's arguments and Stroll makes them even stronger with his further analysis.

A must read that is also quite "readable" compared to many philosophical works. See Tallis' book for more intelligent discussions along similar themes.
