‘Wide‐angle View’ introduces the reader to Wittgenstein's philosophy as a whole, its general outlook, style, and conclusions. Pears argues that Wittgenstein's later thought is whole‐heartedly critical in the Kantian sense, while his earlier project, and the Tractatus in particular, are to be thought of as semi‐critical.

Keywords: critical philosophy; Kant; Tractatus; early Wittgenstein; late Wittgenstein; Wittgenstein
