Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Wittgenstein: Understanding And Meaning, Second Edition
Subtitle: Volume 1 of an Analytical Commentary on the Philosophical Investigations, Part II: Exegesis §§1-184
Written By: Gordon P. Baker
P.M.S. Hacker
URL: http://www.blackwellpublishing.com/140511987X
Description:

This is a new edition of the first volume of G.P.Baker and P.M.S. Hacker’s
definitive reference work on Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations.

- Takes into account much material that was unavailable when the first
edition was written.

- Following Baker's death in 2002, P.M.S. Hacker has thoroughly revised the
first volume, rewriting many essays and sections of exegesis completely.

- Part One – the Essays – now includes two completely new essays: 'Meaning
and Use' and 'The Recantation of a Metaphysician'.

- Part Two – Exegesis §§1–184 – has been thoroughly revised in the light of
the electronic publication of Wittgenstein's Nachlass, and includes many
new interpretations of the remarks, a history of the composition of the
book, and an overview of its structure.

- The revisions will ensure that this remains the definitive reference work
on Wittgenstein’s masterpiece for the foreseeable future.
