Translated by G.E.M. Anscombe and edited by G.H. von Wright and Rush Rhees, 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. 

From the library of the American-born Oxford philosopher James P. Griffin (1933-2019), with his ownership stamp to the front free endpaper.
