  1. 1. Wittgenstein Jr.

    The novel follows a group of Cambridge philosophy students under the guidance of their enigmatic and often perplexing lecturer, whom they nickname Wittgenstein Jr due to his philosophical intensity and resemblance to the famous philosopher. Throughout the academic year, the students grapple with their own intellectual and existential crises while being drawn into their lecturer's personal quest to forge a philosophical path that both honors and challenges the legacy of his namesake. The narrative weaves together themes of youth, academia, and the struggle for meaning in a style that is both humorous and deeply reflective.
