Wittgenstein believed that the book solved the fundamental problems of philosophy, and left academia to teach in a rural Austrian school.
After being forced to leave for physically abusing some students, he returned to Vienna and began to reconsider his earlier work, which he thought had been misunderstood, especially by the Logical Positivists of the Vienna Circle; he also began to develop his own critique.
Eventually these conclusions led him to compose his second major work, the it is considered to be among the very few key texts of twentieth-century philosophy.
