Wittgenstein Reading Group
Wittgenstein is one of the 20th century's most influential philosophers and the source of many divergent reactions and interpretations. This reading group will focus on a close-reading of Philosophical Investigations in the first term (where appropriate dipping into secondary texts in order to interpret certain sections.) Depending on how far we get in the first term, we will try to read another Wittgenstein text (up to the groups preference). We will be focusing on reading Wittgenstein's philosophy in itself, rather than his relation to other thinkers and disciplines. We hope to meet weekly, but want to be as flexible as possible. For the first week, we will try to read §§1-45. We suggest the dual language Revised Fourth edition by P. M. S. Hacker and Joachim Schulte, but feel free to use whatever copy is available to you.
We meet in person, but people who are not able to come to campus are welcome to join via teams (With this link: https://teams.microsoft.com/l/team/19%3achIBNXEVzbScpcKNlyGY3OczMIMvSc_3PBgAV6YVa3g1%40thread.tacv2/conversations?groupId=06aa190c-4ffb-4ad3-a9b6-bd6a20ae5761&tenantId=09bacfbd-47ef-4465-9265-3546f2eaf6bc )
