Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion

Full Product Description

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.

Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion by Brian R. Clack was published by Palgrave USA in January 1999. The ISBN for Wittgenstein, Frazer and Religion is 9780312216429.
