Forthcoming: Wittgenstein: Key Concepts (Kelly Dean Jolley, ed.)

Wittgenstein: Key Concepts (click on image to enlarge)

We wanted to let our readers know that Acumen will soon publish a new volume in their Key Concepts series, this one on Wittgenstein, edited by Kelly Dean Jolley (Philosophy, Auburn University). It includes contributions by a wonderful group of Wittgenstein scholars (see the TOC below), and Prof. Jolley’s introduction, which I was able to read in manuscript, is excellent (in particular, it provides an especially lucid and compelling account of the “resolute” reading of the Tractatus). To visit Acumen’s webpage for the book, please click here. Or go ahead and pre-order a copy at Amazon, by clicking here.
