David Bloor's challenging evaluation of Wittgenstein's account of rules and rule-following brings together a combination of philosophical and sociological viewpoints. Wittgenstein enigmatically claimed that the way we follow rules is an institution without ever clearly explaining what he meant by this term. Wittgenstein's contribution to the debate on rule-following has been subject to sharply opposed interpretations: collectivist and individualist readings by philosophers. David Bloor provides an informative explorations of this debate and argues for a collectivist account of rules and a collectivist reading of Wittgenstein's later work. Clearly written, this book offers a consistent sociological reading of Wittgenstein's work. It is useful reading for students of philosophy and sociology, and anyone interested in the later thought of Wittgenstein.Clearly written, this book offers a consistent sociological reading of Wittgensteina#39;s work.
