Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion Brian R. Clack Springer 9780333682401 : Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion expounds and analyses the argument of Wittgenstein& Remarks on Frazer& Golden Boug. But no book has really followed up on these claims, especially as they relate to the special literary and artistic period in which Wittgenstein worked. This book offers the first collection to address the rich, vexed, and often contradictory relationship between modernism the twentieth century s predominant cultural and artistic movement and Wittgenstein, one of its preeminent and most enduring philosophers. In doing so it offers rich new understandings of both. This book shows that Wittgenstein neither embraces expressivism, as it is generally assumed, nor straightforwardly denies instrumentalism.

Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion . by Clack, Brian R. Hardback.

Remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough (German: Bemerkungen über Frazers "The Golden Bough") is a collection of Ludwig Wittgenstein's thoughts on James George Frazer's The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion.

Clack provides a much-needed primer in Wittgenstein's thought as it relates to religious belief.

The book provides an overview of Wittgenstein's writing on religion, a guide round the maze of his thinking on the subject and an assessment of his influence in contemporary debates.

Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion expounds and analyses the argument of Wittgenstein's Remarks on Frazer's Golden Bough . It details the reasons for Wittgenstein's rejection of the intellectualist theory of religion, and suggests a new interpretation of his rival view of ritual. Denying that Wittgenstein's account is straightforwardly expressivist, the author builds his own interpretation on Wittgenstein's claim that magic is akin to metaphysics. In the course of the book, the author considers such matters as expressivism, 'perspicuous representation', the nature of human sacrifice, and Wittgenstein's cultural pessimism.
