    Wittgenstein: Connections and Controversies.Peter Michael Stephan Hacker - 2001 - Oxford University Press.
    Focusing on diverse aspects of Wittgenstein's philosophy, this volume not only provides a valuable introduction, but also investigates connections between the philosophy of Wittgenstein, other philosophers--in particular, Frege, Frazer, Carnap, and Strawson--and philosophical trends. It also illuminates very different aspects of Wittgenstein's thought, probing into the controversies it stimulates, as well as into its influence.

    Insight and Illusion: Wittgenstein on Philosophy and the Metaphysics of Experience.Peter Michael Stephan Hacker - 1972 - Oxford University Press.

    Wittgenstein: On Human Nature.Peter Michael Stephan Hacker - 1997 - Phoenix.
    This essential introduction to the philosopher and his thought, combines passages from Wittgenstein with detailed interpretation.

The role of philosophy is to ask questions which reveal the limits and nature of language. Taking the expression, description and observation of pain as examples, Hacker explores the ingenuity with which Wittgenstein identified the (...)

    The Rise of Twentieth Century Analytic Philosophy.Peter Michael Stephan Hacker - 1996 - Ratio 9 (3):243-268.
    The classificatory concept of analytic philosophy cannot fruitfully be given an analytic definition, nor is it a family-resemblance concept. Dummett's contention that it is 'the philosophy of thought' whose main tenet is that an account of thought is to be attained through an account of language is rejected for historical and analytic reasons. Analytic philosophy is most helpfully understood as a historical category earmarking a leading trend in twentieth-century philosophy originating in Cambridge. Its first three phases, viz. Cambridge Platonist pluralism, (...)

    Wittgenstein: Connections and Controversies consists of thirteen thematically linked essays on different aspects of the philosophy of Wittgenstein, by one of the leading commentators on his work. After an opening overview of Wittgenstein's philosophy the following essays fall into two classes: those that investigate connections between the philosophy of Wittgenstein and other philosophers and philosophical trends, and those which enter into some of the controversies that, over the last two decades, have raged over the interpretation of one aspect or another (...)
