A reading of Nietzsche's The Birth of Tragedy sets up Bearn's reading of the existential point of Wittgenstein's Tractatus. Bearn argues that both books try to resolve our anxiety about the meaning of life by appeal to the deep. It offers an unusual take on Wittgenstein's conception of the task of philosophy and, particularly, of the significance of his later writings. I liked Bearn's remarks on Wittgenstein's conception of the 'sublime' which are wholly original.

I was hoping to get an overview of Wittgenstein's philosophical investigations - this is not it. According to the introduction, Wittgenstein is considered very hard to understand and the author is going to prove that his writings were actually coherent. Then he takes us on a confused trip through the works. The author gives a zillion footnotes back into W's papers and quotes from them at length. I didn't feel there was a synthesis of W's work, more of a confused roadmap. If you're a Wittgenstein junkie then you might find this book useful. I felt like I was reading a grad student's research paper. If you're a student of philosophy looking to understand what Wittgenstein is all about, then this is not the book for you.

You have heard it said that all philosophical arguments are nothing more than arguments about words. This was Wittgenstein's premise. He believed that the perfect definition was nothing more than a philosophical mirage. More importantly there is the hint of an ethical premise in The Investigations. The hint lies in the most misunderstood of all philosophical remarks: the "forms of life." Interpreted in more ways than you can fill out a lottery card, Wittgenstein insinuated that how you live your life is the most important of all philosophical statements you will ever make. He also insinuated that not all meaning was tied up in language, texts and signs. Both insinuations are as heretical now as they were then. Still today we find ourselves slidding on the "icey logic of language."

WPI Review

Of all the exegesis on Wittgenstein's work, this one suffers the greatest lack of clarity. Anyone who wishes to understand Wittgenstein should steer clear of Brenner's work. Speaking from an experienced vista (a student in Brenner's class) the material covered in Brenner's WPI and his course at ODU is unnecessarily difficult to understand. The combination of irrelevant commentary from other sources and awkward language makes this book one for the recycling pile. The review on the back by Cora Diamond would lead one to believe this work offers some kind of insight that cannot be obtained elsewhere. I would advise the reader to continue looking.

As other readers who left comments suggest, this book is a lackluster example of Wittgenstein. If you are interested in learning about Wittgenstein there are other sources with a mainstream analysis availble. This book tends to be vaguely written and isn't devoid of making presumptuous claims that cannot be substanitiated. In other words, the work is largely composed of opinion that is not in correspondence with the major scholars of Wittgenstein.
