The idea of the Inner is central to our concept of a person and yet is far from being philosophically understood. This book offers a comprehensive account of Wittgenstein's work on the subject and presents a forceful challenge to contemporary views. Written in a non-technical and accessible style, it throws new light both on Wittgenstein's work and on the problem of the Inner self.
`Johnston's book is a more accurate and sympathetic presention of Wittgenstein's thoughts about the Inner than anything else I know.' - Malcolm Budd, University College London
