Wittgensteins Form of Life reveals the intricate relationship between language and life throughout Ludwig Wittgensteins work. Drawing on the entire corpus of his writings, David Kishik offers a synoptic view of Wittgensteins evolving thought by considering the notion of form of life as its vanishing center. The book takes its cue from the idea that to imagine a language means to imagine a form of life, in order to present the first holistic account of Wittgensteins philosophy in the spirit of a new wave of interpretations, pioneered by Stanley Cavell, Cora Diamond and James Conant. It is also an enticing contribution to the rising discourse revolving around the subject of life, led by the recent work of Giorgio Agamben. Standing on the threshold between the Analytic and the Continental philosophical traditions, Kishik shows how Wittgensteins philosophy of language points toward a new philosophy of life, thereby making a unique contribution to our ethical and political thought.
