'In the twenty-six short years of his life, F.P.Ramsey sowed the seeds of all the most important ideas in twentieth-century philosophy. Pascal Engel and Jerome Dokic have done an excellent job of explaining Ramsey's contribution, and showing what he might have achieved had he lived.' - David Papineau, Kings College, London
'Of the people at Cambridge who studied the Tractatus in its first year of publication, Ramsey was undoubtedly the most perceptive. Although still an undergraduate, he was commissioned to write a review of Wittgenstein's work for the philosophical journal, Mind. The review remains to this day one of the most reliable expositions, and one of the most penetrating criticisms, of the work.'-Ray Monk, Ludwig Wittgenstein: The Duty of Genius
