A humorous portrait of one of this century's most influential philosophers. Wittgenstein was born in Vienna in 1889 as the youngest of nine children. During studies at Cambridge, Wittgenstein is seen as a brilliant thinker, patronised by Bertrand Russell and academies of the day. Ludwig's search for intellectual self-development results in a succession of bizarre encounters, including a discussion about the meaning of life with a green martian.
