The philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) has been vastly influential to artists and thinkers alike; despite having only one book published during his lifetime, Wittgenstein was a prolific writer and many of his manuscripts were published posthumously.

In this book the author "gives a systematic account of Wittgenstein's later philosophy of mathematics and establishes its links with his later philosophy of language." (n.b., from dust jacket flap)
