About the Author

Anscombe (1919-2001) read classics and philosophy at St Hugh's College, Oxford from 1937 to 1941 in which year she married the philosopher Peter Geach. She subsequently researched in philosophy at Newnham College, Cambridge where she became a student and friend of Ludwig Wittgenstein. One of his literary executors, she played a large part in editing his unpublished works and was their principal English translator. In 1946 she returned to Oxford as a University Lecturer in 1951. From 1970 until her retirement in 1986 she held the Chair of Philosophy at Cambridge.


"From Plato to Wittgenstein is the third book of a very welcome series of recently edited books featuring mostly unpublished or uncollected papers by Elizabeth Anscombe... [T]his volume of Anscombe's papers shows, more perhaps than any other, the fundamental influence Wittgenstein had on her work... The editors Mary Geach and Luke Gormally are to thank for providing access to the writings of this major philosopher of the twentieth century." -- Valerie Aucouturier Philosophy in Review, 2013, no. 1 "This volume is the third in the series and brings together twenty essays on a wide range of thinkers including Plato, Anselm, Thomas Aquinas, Spinoza, Hume on Causality and Wittgenstein."
