Ludwig Wittgenstein was one of the great thinkers of the 20th Century. Part of his originality lay in his view of what Philosophy was and how it ought to be done. For this episode of Philosophy Bites Barry Smith of Birkbeck College London gives a lucid account of Wittgenstein's conception of Philosophy.
[You can also listen to an episode of BBC Radio 4's In Our Time on Wittgenstein to which Barry Smith contributed here. This programme was originally broadcast on 4th Dec. 2003.]
David Edmonds, who introduces this podcast, is co-author of the book Wittgenstein's Poker.
