Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889–1951) is one of the greatest philosophers of the 20th century. He is best known for Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Philosophical Investigations, and On Certainty. Wittgenstein's philosophy covers a great range of topics including logic, mathematics, religion, aesthetics, anthropology, psychology, culture, and perception. In his treatment of these, Wittgenstein exposes and redefines our understanding of mind, language, meaning, and action.
