aA strikingly brilliant and lucid piece of work. Last shows how Wittgensteinas entanglements of philosophy and architecture become the necessary prologue to his accomplishment in the Investigations. Wittgensteinas House takes what is often considered a marginal or extraneous interlude in his work and demonstrates how it in fact forms the indispensable pivot of a major reorientation in Wittgensteinas thought.a
. . . An interesting and thought-provoking work, one that adds to the corpus of writings on Wittgenstein's ideas about architecture and aesthetics.
...sheds light on the architectural experiences that led Wittgenstein from an account of language emanating from a...paranormal perspective...to an interior view of language.-Christopher C. Robinson
A noteworthy synthesis of Wittgenstein's philosophy with the subject of architecture.
