Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is the only book-length philosophical work by the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein that was published during his lifetime. The project had a broad goal: to identify the relationship between language and reality and to define the limits of science.

    Tractatus Wittgenstein develops his view on logic, i.e. on what logical analysis is about.

It’s impossible to understand without deep knowledge of his great predecessors, Frege and Russell.
