In this 1921 opus, his only philosophical work published during his lifetime, the Austro-British philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein defined the object of philosophy as the logical clarification of thoughts and proposed the solution to most philosophic problems by means of a critical method of linguistic analysis. In proclaiming philosophy as a matter of logic rather than of metaphysics, Wittgenstein created a sensation among intellectual circles that influenced the development of logical positivism and changed the direction of 20th-century thought.

The introduction by philosopher Bertrand Russell hails Wittgenstein’s achievement as extraordinarily important, “one which no serious philosopher can afford to neglect.”
