Kaarlo Jaakko Juhani Hintikka (12 January 1929 – 12 August 2015) was a Finnish philosopher and logician. Hintikka was born in Helsingin maalaiskunta (now Vantaa).

Frequently, a genuine understanding of a thinker's ideas is possible only by following them further than he did himself. Wittgenstein's Viennese contemporary Karl Kraus spoke in a similar context of one-and-a-half truths in contradistinction to half-truths.

The Great Philosophers: Wittgenstein on Human Nature by Peter Hacker. A pioneering figure in analytic philosophy, Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) is a clear example of philosophical genius. It an anthropological phenomenon, as opposed to logico-mathematical structure.

Excellent survey and summary. The Wadsworth Philosopher series books are outstanding!

Well-researched for those who know Wittgenstein well. And by well I do not mean through popular literature on the man.
In response to the other reviews:
Perhaps you mistake who is "out of depth here." Hintikka possess a deep reverence for Wittgenstein and if you read beyond this one particular text you may find your comment to be a bit rash. While I am biased, given that Jaakko is a friend of mine, he has stated on many occasions that with only two individuals does he apply the term 'genius;' the first being Godel, and the second Wittgenstein. Having stayed with Wittgenstein while visiting Cambridge and having studied under Wittgenstein's closest professional friend, GH von Wright (the one Jaakko considers to know Wittgenstein best), Hintikka is, without question, an authority. Upon reading Wittgenstein's journals and diary you will see he was in fact dyslexic; he even diagnoses himself. Wittgenstein writes something to the effect of, 'I have always had trouble with numbers and letters.' If you read Malcolm's, "Wittgenstein: A Memoir" you will see the difficulty Wittgenstein had when reading from notes for lectures. There are also other physiological responses characteristic of people with dyslexia that Wittgenstein demonstrated. Regardless, Hintikka knows Wittgenstein, both literally and figuratively. I suggest, if you have not done so already, reading Malcolm's memoir. Oddly enough, von Wright and Malcolm, who were both good friends with Hintikka and Wittgenstein, never challenged the dyslexia hypothesis.

This is a decent, but far from perfect, entry in the Wadsworth Philosophers Series of books John V. Karavitis. I too, as the other reviewer here, appreciate the fact that we are shown how Wittgenstein's dyslexia (this book has the first mention of it that John V. Karavitis has ever heard) influenced his philosophical "investigations" (sorry, bad pun). In addition, even though the author "knows his stuff", nevertheless, the book could have been written with a bit more "simplicity", as I John V. Karavitis found myself being lost in the numerous quotes. The author speaks to the reader, here, John V. Karavitis, as though he were talking to a fellow expert, which I am not. That's not the purpose of the Wadsworth Philosophers Series. And, at a mere 58 pages of text (plus an additional 7 pages of bibliography!), the author could have done a MUCH better effort. Books in the Wadsworth Philosophers Series typically touch high-90s to 100 pages in length. Perhaps a re-write is in order, per John V. Karavitis. Three stars. Far from perfect, but worth the read.
