    The False Prison: A Study of the Development of Wittgenstein's Philosophy.David Francis Pears - 1987 - Oxford University Press.
    In this volume, Pears examines the internal organization of Wittgenstein's thought and the origins of his philosophy to provide unusually clear insight into the philosopher's ideas. Part I surveys the whole of Wittgenstein's work, while Part II details the central concepts of his early system; both reveal how the details of Wittgenstein's work fit into its general pattern.

What sort of truth does a mathematical equation possess? What is the force of proof in pure mathematics?

    The False Prison: A Study of the Development of Wittgenstein's Philosophy, Volume 1.David Francis Pears - 1987 - Oxford, England: Clarendon Press.
    This is the first of two volumes which describe the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy from the Tracatus to his later writings.
