Wittgenstein quiz

This OUP quiz is from last year but I've just discovered it today. Hint: you won't get the questions all right if you think Wittgenstein made a significant contribution to the philosophy of religion.

Meanwhile, at philpercs...

I have some thoughts about "Bad Wittgenstein," i.e. bad uses of things Wittgenstein said. I also have some comments about Catholic sexual ethics in which I manage, it seems to me, to be right but still lose the debate.
