''The most perfect example I have ever known of genius as traditionally conceived'', was how Bertrand Russell described Wittgenstein, one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century. This book brings together five people who knew him intimately, his sister, Hermine Wittgenstein; his Russian teacher Fania Pascal; F. R. Leavis, a fellow Cambridge don; and John King and M. O'C. Dury, two of his pupils, one of whom was with him when he died.
