About the Author

Arif Ahmed is Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Cambridge, UK.


"This is a marvellously clear, compact, and compelling introductory guide to Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. In something less than 200 pages, Ahmed deftly reveals both the global structure of the Investigations and also the finegrained argument-structure of its most famous set pieces, and appropriately embeds it in its historical-philosophical context too. I'll unfailingly recommend this book to my students." - Robert Hanna, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA
