  1. 5 out of 5

    Evan Hurley O'Dwyer

    The essays in this book give an excellent explanation of many of the concepts crucial to the Philosophical Investigations. It cleared up a lot of confusion I had, and answered a lot of questions I had about some of the ideas Wittgenstein puts forward. The four volume set is probably the most thorough exegesis of the PI.
