Many regard Wittgenstein as perhaps the greatest philosopher of the 20th century. I don't share that view. But there's no denying that, for a man who published only one book during his lifetime -- a book that he later basically repudiated -- he really did have a tremendous impact on 20th century analytic philosophy. Indeed, Wittgenstein has to be regarded as one of the great founding fathers. Wittgenstein believed that his writing should not save other people the trouble of thinking for themselves. In this book the author attempts to de-mystify Wittgenstein and stimulate the reader's own ideas on the use of words as instruments.

Introduction: The Philosophical Culture p. 3 I Philosophy of Mind 1. Freud's Anthropomorphism p. 13 2. Freud's Permanent Revolution p. 26 3. Wittgenstein: The Egocentric Predicament p. 45 4. Chomsky: Linguistics and Epistemology p. 56 5. Fodor: The Boundaries of Inner Space p. 65 6. Armstrong on the Mind p. 72 7. Dennett: Content and Consciousness p. 82 8.   The philosophical problem of other minds goes like this. I know that I have a mind, that is, feelings, sensations, thoughts and the like, in a very direct way. I am directly aware of what goes on in my own mind. But how do I know that something like this goes on in other people?

“Wittgenstein has solved, or at least provided the conceptual machinery required to solve, the episte-mological problem of other minds. He has done this, the received view continues, with his concept of criteria” — “Wittgenstein on Criteria and Other Minds,” Southern Journal of Philosophy (): John Searle once complained to Bryan Magee about all the trash that was being published about the so-called private language argument of sections § ff. of the Philosophical could easily have extended his claim to publications about the Investigations in general. The first generation of Wittgenstein interpretation has been exceedingly weak, causing his work largely to fall 4/5.

Søren Overgaard's Wittgenstein and Other Minds (WM) makes two interesting contributions to the Wittgenstein literature. First, it approaches contemporary debates about the problem of "other minds" (WM 2) as a conceptual and ontological problem -- viz., how we conceive of mind in the first place (before turning to determinations concerning the minds of others).

Other Minds will delight and challenge every naturalist, every diver, every person who has ever wondered about the nature of other creatures' experience.
