Wittgenstein Reading Group

Wittgenstein Reading Group. We are continuing our reading of Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations where we left off (which is at §172) and we welcome anyone to join in – whether you have read Wittgenstein before or not. This term we also plan to look into some secondary literature by Stanley Cavell, John McDowell and Saul Kripke. All interested students and staff are welcome. We meet on Fridays from 1-2.30pm and – for the time being – online on Teams.

Wittgenstein is one of the 20th century's most influential philosophers and the source of many divergent reactions and interpretations. In this reading group, we focus on a close reading of Philosophical Investigations and on discussing Wittgenstein's philosophy in itself, rather than his relation to other thinkers and disciplines.

For the first week (14 January), we will try to read §§172-197. 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.

Please contact Aline Rickli for further information.
