BEYOND THE _TRACTATUS_ WARS – Information about my next edited book, a sequel to THE NEW WITTGENSTEIN

Over fifteen years have passed since Cora
Diamond and James Conant turned Wittgenstein
scholarship upside down with the program of
‘resolute’ reading, and ten years since this reading was
crystallized in the major collection, The New Wittgenstein,
also with Routledge. This approach remains at the
center of the debate about Wittgenstein and his
philosophy, and this book draws together the latest
thinking of the world’s leading Tractatarian
scholars and promising newcomers. Showcasing
one piece alternately from each ‘camp’, Beyond
The Tractatus Wars pairs newly commissioned pieces addressing
differing views on how to understand early
Wittgenstein, providing for the first time an arena
in which the debate between ‘strong’ resolutists,
‘mild’ resolutists and ‘elucidatory’ readers of the book can really take
place. The book includes famous ‘samizdat’ essays by
 Warren Goldfarb and Roger White that are finally seeing the light of day.
