The Beginning of Philosophical Modernity

In August 1918 Wittgenstein completed his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. This book has transformed the world of philosophy.
It is probably the first thoroughly modern philosophical work: this concerns its style as well as its contents, its views on logic and language as well as its literary form. The
task of coming to grips with the Tractatus, of understanding its makeup and consequences has by no means been completed. One might say that even today the book poses many unanswered questions and puzzles interpreters again and again.
