Wittgenstein – Why is he so Important?


07/10/2017 (Saturday)

2.00 - 5.00 pm

The Adelaide

Speaker: Jim Grant 

Wittgenstein once said he felt he was writing ‘for people who would think in a different way, breathe a different air of life’ from that of his contemporaries. In the session we will examine the impact of Wittgenstein on modern philosophy, explore some of the main themes of his thought, and ask whether his very radical and distinctive conception of philosophy and philosophical method might point us towards new ways of thinking.
