Wittgenstein and the Inexpressible

  • Freeman Dyson
Part of the The Frontiers Collection book series (FRONTCOLL)


Wittgenstein, unlike Heidegger, did not establish an ism. He wrote very little, and everything that he wrote was simple and clear. The only book that he published during his lifetime was Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, written in Vienna in 1918 and published in England with a long introduction by Bertrand Russell in 1922.
