Following the philosopher's religious and cultural feedback and tying it extra tightly to the general evolution of his inspiration, Cahill frames an unique interpretation of Wittgenstein's engagement with Western metaphysics and modernity, larger contextualizing the intentions and strength of his work.

Throughout the process his examine, Cahill synthesizes numerous techniques to Wittgenstein's lifestyles and idea. He stresses the nontheoretical aspirations of the philosopher's early and later writings, combining key parts from the so-called resolute readings of the Tractatus with the "therapeutic" readings of Philosophical Investigations. He indicates how continuity in Wittgenstein's cultural and non secular matters expert if no longer guided the improvement of his paintings among the writing of those texts, and in his studying of the Tractatus, Cahill finds unbelievable affinities with Martin Heidegger's Being and Time, a textual content hardly ever linked to Wittgenstein's early formulations. In his recapturing of ask yourself, Wittgenstein either refrained from and undermined conventional philosophy's reliance on conception. As he relays this daring pastime, Cahill establishes his personal leading edge analytical tools, becoming a member of historicist and contextualist ways with text-based, immanent readings, launching a sustained exam by no means tried earlier than with Wittgenstein's work.
