A bilingual edition of the last work of Ludwig Wittgenstein, one of the most important philosophers of the twentieth century, accompanied by a series of Mel Bochner's minimalist "Wittgenstein drawings," a striking synthesis of art and mathematics perfectly suited to Wittgenstein's text. The introduction by Arthur Danto, Johnsonian Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University and winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for his art criticism, addresses both Wittgenstein's philosophy and Bochner's prints. An immaculate copy. One of an edition of 300 copies.
