Connects the two main strands of Wittgenstein's later philosophy discussed in Volume 2 in a number of ways and culminates in an abstract and general overview of the later works. Pears extracts the similarities and differences between Wittgenstein's later thought and the philosophies of his predecessors and contemporaries, and thereby determines his place in the past and his value for present philosophical endeavours.

Keywords:   contemporary philosophy, late Wittgenstein, Wittgenstein
