Arthur John Wisdom is a contemporary English thinker heavily influenced by Wittgenstein.

Wisdom, renowned for his effort to redefine the nature and purpose of philosophy in the contemporary tradition of analytical philosophy, claimed that if philosophy was used as an analytical and linguistic tool, just like Wittgenstein, the problems of traditional philosophy would be understood as not real problems, but pseudo-problems. On the one hand, he argued, certain entities, such as material objects, were nothing more than logical constructions or constructions derived from more fundamental elements, for example sense-impressions.
