Wittgenstein The Sexist?

From a New York Times review of Jim Holt’s Why Does the World ExistAn Existential Detective Story. It looks like good’ol Ludwig was a bit of a sexist.

… his response to female students who tried to attend his lectures was even worse. If a woman appeared in the audience, he would remain standing silent until she left the room. I decided that he was a charlatan using outrageous behavior to attract attention. I hated him for his rudeness. HT: Dr. Rich Davis
