Remarks on the Foundations of Mathematics was the second of Wittgenstein's posthumous works to be published, following Philosophical Investigations (1953). Representing Wittgenstein's most extensive work on the philosophy of mathematics, originally intended to form the second part of Philosophical Investigations, this imposing and brilliantly edited work stands by itself.
