"Rhees and Monk record the many sympathetic remarks Wittgenstein made about
Marxism, about workers and about revolutionary activity. While these are not
in themselves models of 'orthodoxy', they reveal how close Wittgenstein came
to adopting a very weak form of class politics in the 1930's -- certainly
closer than any other major philosopher had done since Marx himself; cf.,
Rhees (1984), pp.205-09. [Cf., also Norman Malcolm's Introduction to Rhees's
book, pp.xvii-xviii, and Monk (1990), pp.343-54.]"
CB: If philosophy is mostly 2500 years of claptrap for the bosses, why is it
to Wittgenstein's credit that he is a major philosopher ?
