This fourth and final volume of writings by Elizabeth Anscombe reprints her Introduction to Wittgenstein's Tractatus, together with a number of later essays on thought and language in which she explores issues of reason, representation, truth and existence. As with previous volumes this gathers hitherto inaccessible publications and previously unpublished texts. Singly and collectively the four volumes provide for a broader and deeper understanding of the thought of one of the twentieth century's most important anglophone philosophers.


"It is difficult to exaggerate the interest and importance of making available Elizabeth Anscombe's unpublished writings and some of her published work that it has been difficult to get hold of recently. The editors and the publishers have done philosophy a great service." -- Alasdair MacIntyre "Elizabeth Anscombe has been described as the greatest woman philosopher of all time. That may well be true. What is certain is that in the latter half of the twentieth century Anscombe could hold her own with any philosopher in the world." -- Anthony Kenny "I met Elizabeth Anscombe in 1960, and was overwhelmed by her brilliance. Since then I have been impressed by the philosophical and human depth of her work time and time again. She was truly one of the great philosophers of the twentieth century." -- Hilary Putnam "Elizabeth Anscombe was the most important of Wittgenstein's pupils, with an intellect as great and wide-ranging as her teacher's. She thought deeply, wrote beautifully, and was never taken in by pretence." -- Roger Scruton "There's no denying that editors Mary Geach and Luke Gormally have in these 312 pages covered a wide terrain of idiosyncratic intellectual thought - the sort of which will compel many an inquisitive soul to ponder way beyond the parameters of ones' comfort zone..." -- David Marx David Marx Book Reviews "In short, this book is highly recommended: all the articles are worth reading, and the best are outstanding." -- Roger M. White, University of Leeds Philosophical Inverstigations, Vol. 39, No. 4
