Rush Rhees, a close friend of Wittgenstein and a major interpreter of
his work, shows how Wittgenstein's On Certainty concerns logic,
language, and reality -- topics that occupied Wittgenstein since early
in his career.

-Authoritative interpretation of Wittgenstein's last great work, On
 Certainty, by one of his closest friends.
-Debunks misconceptions about Wittgenstein's On Certainty and shows
 that it is an essay on logic.
-Exposes the continuity in Wittgenstein's thought, and the radical
 character of his conclusions.
-Contains a substantial and illuminating afterword discussing current
 scholarship surrounding On Certainty, and its relationship to Rhees's
 work on this subject.
