S on religious belief For the rest however in the vast collection of commentary and criticism that has accumulated over the years little attention has been paid to his religious interest. I liked this

    Work on philosophy like work in architecture in many respects is really work on oneself On one's own conception On how one sees things And what one expects of them CV 24What makes Work on Oneself so compelling to read also limits its scope and constrains how much space is dedicated to the actual philosophical psychology that Kerr is supposedly focusing on The book was published by The Institute for the Psychological Sciences whose mission it is to contribute to the renewal of the Christian Intellectual tradition and to the development of a psychology consistent with the teachings of the Catholic ChurchThis is apparent in Kerr's focus on Wittgenstein's writings and the writings of others about him and his espoused ambivalence regarding Catholicism and even religion generally Though this colours Kerr's treatment and interpretation I think it serves it well and adds needed depth and texture in many places Kerr also includes meaningful and enlightening references to and writings from Wittgenstein's friend and former student Maurice O'Connor Drury who became a psychiatrist rather than a professional philosopher One example It would be a tragedy if well meaning commentators should make it appear that his Wittgenstein's writings were now easily assimilable into the very intellectual milieu they were largely a warning against 1966and thisA mental illness may indeed utterly disable the patient for the daily commerce of social life but the terrifying loneliness of such an experience may make him aware of the mysteriousness of our present beingKerr spends much time and effort creating this mosaic of the man Wittgenstein through the writings of others particularly his students That leads to a feeling that this book isn't so much about Wittgenstein as it is about others' thoughts of him Though some reviewers seem put off by this indirect treatment of the material I think it makes that same material compelling regardless of whether you agree or disagree with the assertions In all this is not a deeply original work nor could it be I think due to the space to which it's limited However it is highly readable and adds to the enjoyment and understanding of other works I place this with Edmond and Eidinow's Wittgenstein's Poker and Nedo's Wittgenstein There Where You Are Not which elucidate eachother's texts and Wittgenstein's work itself

    Perhaps not on par with Kerr's Theology After Wittgenstein but certainly an enjoyable read as Kerr considers LW's philosophical psychology from Kerr's own neo Aristotelian reading of Wittgenstein's later period There is biography on LW as Kerr seeks to give an account that that situates him in a greater catholic context

    I liked this book a lot and saw it as a development of Kerr's thinking on the notion of private language games or some kind of pre linguistic intuition I also think that this book signals a change in Kerr's reading of Wittgenstein from Theology after Wittgenstein and begins to open up via Cavell perhaps some of the mystical dimensions of W's thought

    Read Kerr's Theology After Wittgenstein instead This current volume does not expand any on what Kerr does so well elsewhere
