Wittgenstein in 90 Minutes
- By: Paul Strathern
- Narrated by: Robert Whitfield
- Length: 1 hr and 13 mins
"If we accept Wittgenstein's word for it," Paul Strathern writes, "he is the last philosopher. In his view, philosophy in the traditional sense was finished."

Unless you already know Wittgenstein, this title will be of little value. If you have previously encountered Wittgenstein, you will be very irritated by the authors tone--sarcastic--and the marked paucity of any real information. There is little sense of why Wittgenstein is important and none of his central observations and insights which inform much of late 20th Century philosophy, culture and language.
