Brothers with links to Harlow combine for new book on Wittgenstein

A FORMER Harlow resident has published a new book on the philosopher, Wittgenstein.

Dr Robert Vinten is an academic working at Nova University in Lisbon. He is a Wittgenstein scholar and his book discusses Wittgenstein’s philosophy in relation to the social sciences.

His brother Jack, an artist living in Sheffield provided an illustration for the cover. Jack has shown artistic talent from a young age and has a number of portraits in private collections.

Rob asked him to produce a portrait of Wittgenstein for the front cover of his book and the publishers were delighted with the result.

Rob and Jack were both pupils at Burnt Mill School and Harlow College.
