Michael Luntley offers a striking interpretation of Wittgenstein's philosophy, one aimed at displaying and defending Wittgenstein's positive contribution in the later work.

Provocatively aimed and closely argued inquiry into possibility of judgement (meaning) in Wittgenstein's later work, most notable for re-orienting private language argument away from social subject to individual subject, though emphatically not to Cartesian subject. In the primacy Luntley's reading places on `conditions of possibility', ` self-as-will and active agent', are echoes of Kant and Fichte -- while, in the primitive nature of `seeing similarities', are traces of even Husserl! Plenty here for students of the Austrian thinker to sink their teeth into, though clearly not suitable for a beginner or the casually interested.

I have to hand it to Luntley; this is well argued. The claim that Wittgenstein did not view the social nature of language as "constitutive" (his words) is highly implausible, but it is very instructive to see where Luntley went wrong in his interpretation. For one thing, the 'social aspect' of language is by no means simple, and the cavalier attitude of many imputing this to W. is implausible. So, while I don't think the thesis is correct, the text deserves a look, particularly for those who find it a matter of course that the social determines meaning in Wittgenstein's writing.
