Awesome Analysis Of L. Wittgenstein

Thought and Language gives a comprehensive critique of Ludwig Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations and more. J. -M. Kuczynski's logic is clear and concise. I recommend all philosophical enthusiasts to listen to this great work.

Clear answers to hard questions

Do we think in language? The author makes it perfectly clear exactly how thought does and does not depend on linguistic competence. He doesn't take the easily falsified view that thought is categorically language-dependent; but he also makes it clear how linguistic competence mobilizes and expands the bailiwicks of preexisting cognitive abilities. The expositions and analyses of Wittgenstein are searing and definitive.
