Abstract:

In 1933, Wittgenstein set out to dictate a collection of his recent
writings to a typist in the form of a book. Even as he was dictating he
began revising the text extensively, so that the surviving typewritten
manuscript contains numerous corrections, additions, deletions, alternative
words and phrasings, suggestions for moves within the text, and marginal
comments in both handwritten and typed form.

Long awaited by the scholarly community, Wittgenstein's so-called Big
Typescript (von Wright Catalog no. TS 213) is presented here for the first
time in an en-face German-English scholars' edition, complete with clear
indications to help the reader identify the various levels of
Wittgenstein's editing.

This text provided a rich source of material for Wittgenstein's subsequent
writings, and therefore serves as a key to understanding much of his later
philosophy.


"Experts used to regard an edition of this much revised typescript as
well-nigh impossible. Now they have been proved wrong: Aue and Luckhardt
have miraculously succeeded in producing a scrupulously accurate and at the
same time highly readable edition and translation of this previously
missing link between Wittgenstein's Tractatus and his later writings."
