Ludwig Wittgenstein: The Duty of Genius

Ray Monk, Author Penguin Books $25 (672p) ISBN 978-0-14-015995-0
According to Monk, philosopher and reluctant Cambridge don Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was driven by spiritual as much by intellectual concerns, exchanged academia for solitude whenever possible and was drawn to brilliant younger men. ``Monk has done an excellent job of elucidating the twin journeys of an extraordinary mind and soul,'' said PW.
