Also present in the collection are an edited version of Wittgenstein’s Philosophiche Untersuchungen [ Philosophical Investigations ] with commentary and notes by Georg Henrik von Wright and Heikki Nyman, dated ca. 1945; various drafts and sections are included. In addition, the collection includes a manuscript for an edited version of Philosophiche Bemerkungen, vol. XII, edited by Heikki Nyman (1982).
