A hundred years ago, October 18th 1911, young Wittgenstein invaded Russell's room to start studying with him. Seven years later he had finished the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus; a highly original ethical deed that involved presenting a logical system in literary fashion. The current book sets out to show that despite its condensed literary presentation the Tractatus has a strong interpretation, both philosophically and in its technical fine-structure. It makes clear how Wittgenstein's early views on ethics and logic are related to his symbolic turn. To this end, the symbolic nature of contingent propositions in logical space is charted in detail, while logical propositions are characterized as empty forms about nothing. Not only the finite system is covered but also a natural infinite generalization that Wittgenstein's text just hints at. As it turns out, Wittgenstein's early philosophy gives the sign of a symbol center stage in a way that anticipates the elegant tableaux methods developed much later. Also, Wittgenstein's injective treatment of quantification is shown to be correct.

Essays commence with a quick reference section that provides basic facts on the individual's life and achievements.

Since its first publication in 1988, the New Dictionary of Theology has been widely appreciated by students and readers as a trustworthy and informative guide. After almost thirty years, however, there are many new writers, issues and themes on the agenda, for theology does not stand still. Hence, this completely revised second edition includes over 400 new articles in the full set of over 800. Many of the original articles have been expanded and updated, and almost all have additional bibliographical references. Since material on biblical theology is now covered at length in IVP's New Dictionary of Biblical Theology, this volume is therefore more specifically a dictionary of historical and systematic theology. The New Dictionary of Theology: Historical and Systematic has an international team of contributors, and many are acknowledged experts in their fields. The Dictionary combines excellence in scholarship with a high standard of clarity and insight into current theological issues, yet it avoids being unduly technical. Students, teachers and ministers, as well as scholars and everyone seeking a better understanding of theology, will value it as an indispensable reference work. The volume is enhanced by a spacious and clear design, an extensive and easy-to-use cross-reference system and bibliographies which feature the best and most readily available works in English.

This book presents the entire body of thought of Norbert Wiener (1894–1964), knowledge of which is essential if one wishes to understand and correctly interpret the age in which we live. The focus is in particular on the philosophical and sociological aspects of Wiener’s thought, but these aspects are carefully framed within the context of his scientific journey. Important biographical events, including some that were previously unknown, are also highlighted, but while the book has a biographical structure, it is not only a biography. The book is divided into four chronological sections, the first two of which explore Wiener’s development as a philosopher and logician and his brilliant interwar career as a mathematician, supported by his philosophical background. The third section considers his research during World War II, which drew upon his previous scientific work and reflections and led to the birth of cybernetics. Finally, the radical post-war shift in Wiener’s intellectual path is considered, examining how he came to abandon computer science projects and commenced ceaseless public reflections on the new sciences and technologies of information, their social effects, and the need for responsibility in science.

While Alan Ebenstein's biography of Friedrich Hayek was the first biography of this major twentieth century thinker, the book itself was not - per se - an intellectual biography. Hayek's Journey will be the follow-up volume that will give readers an in-depth look at the evolution of his thought, the influence of the Austrian School of Economics, the roles of Wittgenstein, Freud and Kant in his thinking; his relationship with Karl Popper, etc. This will become a classic of Hayek scholarship by the author credited with writing the first biography of a man who is now widely-regarded as a seer in relationship to the course of the twentieth century.

Sie wurden im selben Jahr 1889 geboren und im gleichen Alter 1911 von einer ungeheuren Leidenschaft des Philosophierens ergriffen, die ihre Denk- und Lebenswege beherrschte und einzigartig machte: Martin Heidegger und Ludwig Wittgenstein. Dabei waren sie der Herkunft nach grundverschieden: Wittgenstein entstammte einer großbürgerlichen Familie in der Metropole Wien, Heidegger kam aus einer badischen Kleinstadt und einfachen Verhältnissen. Aber beide gehören zu den bedeutendsten Philosophen des 20. Jahrhunderts, und für beide wurde die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Nationalsozialismus (auch Hitler war Jahrgang 1889) und den Katastrophen der Epoche ein zentrales Thema. Bestsellerautor Manfred Geier geht den Biographien der beiden Denker nach und beschreibt, wie andersartig ihre Lebenswege waren und wie divergierend ihre Gedanken sich entwickelten. «Sein und Zeit» hieß der Hauptwerk des einen, «Tractatus logico-philosophicus» das des anderen Autors. Während Heideggers Denken im Verlauf seines Lebens immer allgemeiner und abstrakter wurde, das Dasein hinter sich ließ und das «Sein» selbst zur Sprache bringen wollte, begann Wittgenstein, sich immer genauer und differenzierter den alltäglichen Sprachgebrauch anzuschauen und in den Zusammenhang menschlicher Lebensformen einzubinden. Eine faszinierende Spurensuche mit überraschenden Einsichten und Ergebnissen.
