Wittgenstein and the Method of Philosophy. Edited by Sami Pihlström
Philosophical Society of Finland
Acta Philosophica Fennica 80
Helsinki 2006, 239 pp.


The essays collected in this volume seek to throw new light not only on the controversy regarding the new Wittgenstein but, more broadly, on the question of the nature of philosophical methodology as it appears in Wittgensteins and his interpreters work. The emphasis of many of the articles is thus metaphilosophical: ihow/i does Wittgenstein work philosophically, and how should we philosophize when trying to learn something from his investigations? These meta-level issues, however, easily turn into substantially philosophical problems regarding, for example, necessity, possibility, metaphysics, or meaning.
