Item Description...
Drawing on ten years of research on the unpublished Wittgenstein papers, Stern investigates what motivated Wittgenstein's philosophical writing and casts new light on the Tractatus and Philosophical Investigations. The book is an exposition of Wittgenstein's early conception of the nature of representation and how his later revision and criticism of that work led to a radically different way of looking at mind and language. It also explains how the unpublished manuscripts and typescripts were put together and why they often provide better evidence of the development of his ideas than can be found in his published writing. In doing so, the book traces the development of a number of central themes in Wittgenstein's philosophy, including his conception of philosophical method, the picture theory of meaning, the limits of language, the application of language to experience, his treatment of private language, and what he called the "flow of life." Arguing that Wittgenstein's views are often much more simple (and more radical) than we have been led to believe, Wittgenstein on Mind and Language provides an overview of the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy and brings to light aspects of his philosophy that have been almost universally neglected.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best Secondary Source of LW's Thought  Jun 20, 2005
Stern is an articulate and lucid author, wringing out the psychological and linguistic principles of Wittgenstein's often difficult, tortuous, and quixotic thought. Let's face it: "The Philosophical Investigations" and "Tractatus" are not the easist reads -- even for the professional. Stern compares and contrasts Wittgensteins early and later thought, honing in on how his later thought reversed some of his earlier thinking. And, unlike so many other Wittgenstein interpreters, Stern has researched the philosopher's massive, and oftentimes confusing, unpublished notebooks, manuscripts, typescripts, and diaries, in addition to the usual published primary texts, to present a coherent, logical, and detailed analysis of Wittgenstein's thought. Stern is to be congratulated for his polished, clear, and unambiguous writing, a feat not often accomplished by philosophers. Highly recommended for both novices and scholars.
Wittgenstein Razor  Apr 10, 2001
Ludwig Wittgenstein is considered by many to be the most important philosopher of the 20th century. He is also one of the most difficult. David G. Stern's "Wittgenstein on Mind and Language" is one of the very best books anyone - novice or expert -- could consult regarding Wittgenstein's thought. Wittgenstein was concerned, among other things, with the relationship between language and the world, subjectivity and the empirical, and what we can talk about sensibly and what we "must pass over in silence." Stern's book is one of the most accessible secondary sources for helping one to get a foothold with Wittgenstein's philosophy. Stern does a masterful job in giving the reader "the big picture" of what Wittgenstein was trying to get across, while also exploring the most essential details of his thought. Stern's text is interspersed with quotations from Wittgenstein's published works, but also from his unpublished notes, notes from his students, and other sources, which really help shed light on Wittgenstein philosophy. Stern includes a modest amount of biographical material, but his real focus is illuminating Wittgenstein's revolutionary way of looking at traditional philosophical problems. This book, along with Steve Toulmin's "Wittgenstein's Vienna" are two of the very best places to start with Wittgenstein's thought, though experts will also find much of interest in both books. Stern's book is best for those primarily concerned with Wittgenstein's philosophy, while Toulmin's book is equally concerned with biography as it is with philosophy, and hence might appeal to those who want the least abstract introduction to Wittgenstein.
