Kelly Dean Jolley is Chair of the Department of Philosophy, Auburn University, USA.
'In this fascinating and demanding study, Kelly Jolley uses the history of Frege's notorious concept horse paradox to illuminate Wittgenstein's conception of philosophy as a form of therapy. Jolley's careful study of responses to the paradox sheds light on the nature of philosophical perplexity and the power and form of the Wittgensteinian response to such perplexity. Jolley also builds a persuasive case for the continuity both of Frege's influence on Wittgenstein and of Wittgenstein's concern with a therapeutic response to philosophical problems. This is a book which should command the attention not only of scholars of Frege and Wittgenstein, but also of anyone interested in the nature of conceptual analysis and investigation.' Michael Kremer, University of Chicago USA 'Jolley's book is a deceptively thin volume, and a deceptively unassuming one. For all that its contents may be intimidating to non-philosophers, it's worth taking the time to read, and to read carefully, for its target is nothing less than the nature of structured thought itself.'
