‘This introduction to the work of one of the most important figures in the history of philosophy is both accessible and reliable.

Highly recommended.’ – Michael Potter, University of Cambridge, UK

Child’s engagement with various theories and themes in Wittgenstein’s writings, along with his attention to background and historical context, makes this an informative and immensely rewarding book.' – Robert Brice, Loyola University, USA
