Book Description

Originally published in 1999, Wittgenstein: Making Sense of Other Minds explores human relations and the issues raised by one immensely influential response to the problems generated by the claims about the existence and properties of other minds. How do we justify the interpretations which we place on other people's behaviour? Is my mind the only real mind? Is there a difference between the way in which I understand m mind and that of another person? This book explores Wittgenstein's theories, critiquing and analysing them, including chapters on the concept of criteria, grammar in the middle and late period, and the blue book and later work.
