For those who enjoy Wittgenstein, I highly recommend the works of one his greatest students - Elizabeth Anscombe. Possibly one of the most prominent women philosophers of all time.

Thank you for the Recommendation. I have read little of Wittgenstein, but he is on my "to be read" list. I had a quite brilliant but ne'er-do-well friend who opened by eyes to so many great authors and philosophers: Herman Hesse, Idries Shah ( story teller?), Doris Lessing, and quite a few others. These little nudges on HN get me back to reading content more worthwhile than what I am bombarded with in other venues.
