“Sluga’s Wittgenstein would be an ideal textbook in a course on Wittgenstein and political philosophy and an excellent introduction for those interested in exploring that relation.” (Philosophy in Review, 1 December 2012)
“Sluga’s encyclopedic knowledge of Wittgenstein, and of other philosophers such as Frege and Heidegger, attests that he is eminently well qualified to write this book. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-and upper-level undergraduates and graduate students.” (Choice, 1 August 2012)
