Reid Hoffman on One Philosopher to Start With

Reid recommends studying Ludwig Wittgenstein, about whom he’s taught a course at Oxford.

[...] “One of the bedrocks of modern analytic philosophy is to think of language ... if you’re trying to talk to someone else about some problem, and you’re trying to make progress, how do you make language as positive an instrument as possible? What are the ways that language can work, and what are the ways that language doesn’t work?”
