Item description for Wittgenstein in America by Timothy G. McCarthy & Sean C. Stidd...
This remarkable collection explores the legacy of Wittgenstein's work in contemporary American philosophy. The contributors (including several celebrated philosophers) take a variety of approaches to Wittgenstein; they discuss such topics as rule-following, realism about mathematics, the method of the Tractatus, the relation between style and content in Wittgenstein, and his distinction between sense and nonsense. Wittgenstein also is discussed in relation to subsequent philosophers such as Quine and Kripke.

Correction from the co-editor Aug 30, 2005
This is a fine collection of essays on Wittgenstein and issues raised by his work - but, naturally, I would think that. Our authors included Conant, Hertzberg, Williams, Diamond, Putnam, Winch, Finkelstein, Tilghman, and Cavell. There are some interesting thematic threads connecting the papers and, of course, the editors' introduction is first-rate.
The only reason I'm posting this is that this site has had false/misleading information about the book's contents up for a year or more and have not changed them even though I have written them twice. Also, the price doubled after a certain point, though this I think was OUP's doing rather than theirs.
