Perhaps this book will be understood only by someone who has himself already had the thoughts that are expressed in it—or at least similar thoughts.—So it is not a textbook.—Its purpose would be achieved if it gave pleasure to one person who read and understood it.
The book deals with the problems of philosophy, and shows, I believe, that the reason why these problems are posed is that the logic of our language is misunderstood. The whole sense of the book might be summed up the following words: what can be said at all can be said clearly, and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence.

This particular edition appears to be in the Spanish language. When the title is in Latin, it is nice to be able to check the sample before wasting two dollars. That is the sort of thing it might be good to have noted in the "description", but I suppose it isn't easy to maintain oversight of everything that is uploaded. So if you are looking to read this book en Espanol, then here you go!

Couldn't agree more read this book in my analytical philosophy class years ago in college. Still to this day really makes you think about the aim of philosophy and why we humans stress about what we can't explain
Simply put, this is the most ambitious book in the canon of 20th Century analytic philosophy. Even though he disavowed it later in his life, this first book Wittgenstein published is an absolute must read if you are interested in philosophy at all, let alone philosophy of mind and or language.
