    Simply astonishing is the history of Wittgenstein and Hitler With Wittgenstein having an annoying habit of correcting people and Hitler hating being corrected so much he once said that the composer was wrong when someone pulled him up about a mistake in his singing Whether Wittgenstein set Hitler on course to being a Jew hater is not proved by this book but it certainly is suggested in an almost eerily believable fashion.

    a sensationalist narrative held together by a carefully comprised sellection of circumstantial evidence I personally have no problem with that The problem I have is the topic of the holocaust being molded into a form that is in some aspects very problematic 1 great men history as a space created by the few and experienced passively by the many to say no hitler no holocaust as if it was caused only by hitler.2 a stench of teleology, especially in the conclusio.
