(Over)Interpreting Wittgenstein will be read by philosophers investigating Wittgenstein and by scholars, interpreters, students, and specialists, in both analytic and continental philosophy. It will intrigue readers interested in issues of interpretation and cultural studies. This book tells the story - as yet untold - of Wittgenstein interpretation during the past eighty years. It provides different interpretations, chronologies, developments, and controversies. It aims to discover the (socio-cultural rather than psychological) motives and motivations behind the philosophical community's project of interpreting Wittgenstein. As a cultural history of ideas, it traces the parallelism between Wittgenstein interpretation and the move from metaphysics, to language, to postmodernism effected in the twentieth century.

"This is an impressive book: learned, judicious yet provocative, and very readable. It will interest not only Wittgenstein aficionados, but also a much wider readership. It provides a rapid and remarkably helpful orientation for readers who want to know more about Wittgenstein but have trouble navigating around the forbiddingly large and difficult literature. The survey of the extraordinary range of approaches is wide-ranging but well chosen, nearly always focussing on the most significant figures, but giving enough depth and detail of coverage to avoid the dangers that come with an overly schematic summary. Biletzki successfully steers between the Scylla of overly technical philosophical argumentation and the Charybdis of popular oversimplification."
