Serious Errors of understanding

Overall
1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 07-31-08

There are significant errors in history, facts and understanding of Wittgenstein's work that this small effort of 90 minutes thus will not just be a simple review, but rather it likely will impart to the new reader notions of Wittgenstein's thought with such grave misunderstandings that the user might take decades to reverse these imparted folly-laden explanations of Wittgenstein's history, thought and implications for 21st Philosophy. Avoid this. Read the texts. --- RZ PhD
