This volume discusses Wittgenstein's work, as well as his oeuvre in general, and its implications for the nature of reason. Investigates the nature of reason which has always been a topic at the very heart of Western philosophy. Analyses how Wittgenstein raised crucial questions about the subject - most notably in his critique of Frazer's Golden Bough, his discussions of various philosophical aspects of religion, and the famous 'rule-following considerations' from his Philosophical Investigations.
