"Analytic philosophers of art often claim to be anti-essentialist in the supposed spirit of Wittgenstein's anti-essentialism and in the spirit of the Vienna Circle. The anti-essentialism of Wittgenstein is a myth. The myth was started by a misreading of Paul Feyerabend's famous review of Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations and by its advocacy in the 1964 book of George Pitcher." --A Critical Rationalist Aesthetics by Joseph Agassi, ‎Ian Charles Jarvie, 2008
