Publisher's Summary

The Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (Logical Philosophical Treatise or Treatise on Logic and Philosophy) is the only full-length philosophical book by the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein that was published during his lifetime. The goal of the work is to identify the relationship between language and reality and to define the limits of science. He famously summarized the book in the following way: "What can be said at all can be said clearly; and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence."

Ummm...

This is the best reading of TLP but the narrator mispronounces words or says something totally different. It was fine until until 32:34 when she exclaims something midread. A very odd production that can be used as a way to get through Wittgenstein but don't listen to it by itself. The text is already dense.

Good for getting a general idea of what Wittgenstein was saying

This audiobook is Good for getting a general idea of what Wittgenstein was saying but is probably not the best way to do a detailed of Wittgenstein. The logical proofs formulas made no sense to me in audio form but his thesis was clear and interesting.

I have enjoyed this program

I have enjoyed this program. It is nice to listen to the text of this classic in philosophy. We should support these readings so there will be more in the future.
