 Abstract:
 
 This is a new edition of the first volume of G.P.Baker and P.M.S. Hacker's
 definitive reference work on Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations.
 
 - New edition of the first volume of the monumental four-volume Analytical
 Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations.
 
 - Takes into account much material that was unavailable when the first
 edition was written.
 
 - Following Baker's death in 2002, P.M.S. Hacker has thoroughly revised the
 first volume, rewriting many essays and sections of exegesis completely.
 
 - Part One - the Essays - now includes two completely new essays: 'Meaning
 and Use' and 'The Recantation of a Metaphysician'.
 
 - Part Two - Exegesis ยงยง1-184 - has been thoroughly revised in the light of
 the electronic publication of Wittgenstein's Nachlass, and includes many
 new interpretations of the remarks, a history of the composition of the
 book, and an overview of its structure.
 
 - The revisions will ensure that this remains the definitive reference work
 on Wittgenstein's masterpiece for the foreseeable future.
