Ludwig Wittgensteins Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1922) remains one of the most enigmatic works of twentieth century thought. In this bold and original new study, Ben Ware argues that Wittgensteins early masterpiece is neither an analytic treatise on language and logic, nor a quasi-mystical work seeking to communicate ineffable truths. Instead, we come to understand the Tractatus by grasping it in a twofold sense: first, as a dialectical work which invites the reader to overcome certain illusions of thought; and second as a modernist work whose anti-philosophical ambition is intimately tied to its radical aesthetic character.

By placing the Tractatus in the force field of modernism, Dialectic of the Ladder clears the ground for a new and challenging exploration of the works ethical dimension. It also casts new light upon the cultural, aesthetic and political significances of Wittgensteins writing, revealing hitherto unacknowledged affinities with a host of philosophical and literary authors, including Hegel, Kierkegaard, Marx, Nietzsche, Adorno, Benjamin, and Kafka.
