- German and English
Ludwig Wittgenstein was one of the most original and influential philosophers of the 20th century. He was by birth an Austrian of Jewish descent. He received most of his early education at home before studying engineering at Berlin and Manchester, which led to an interest in pure mathematics and the philosophy of mathematics, and in 1912 he moved to Cambridge to become a pupil of Bertrand Russell. His work from 1914-18 led to the writing of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus , which was published in Germany in 1921 and in London in 1922. Wittgenstein served in the Austrian army in World War I and was captured in Italy, and on his release after the war he gave away a considerable fortune he had inherited. From 1920-26 he went to work as an elementary schoolmaster in Austria, then returned to Cambridge in 1929. During the next few years he came to a new position in philosophy, which was first stated in the Blue and Brown Books , a set of lecture notes from 1933-35 and published posthumously in 1958, and later in his Philosophical Investigations (published 1953). He became Professor of Philosophy at Cambridge in 1939, succeeding G. E. Moore. In 1947 he resigned to devote himself to research, but his health soon deteriorated and he died of cancer in 1951.

Ludwig Wittgenstein Looking at the implications of Wittgenstein and his philosophy of mind, language and culture. I am seriously behind in updating this site. I have received email from many visitors and some new material to include. Sorry about the long delay. I hope to have a revision completed by the first of February and possibly move this site to its own server ( or something..)Thank you all for your patience. Wittgenstein Introduction The first time I remember having a "revelatory Insight" reading Wittgenstein was late one night while working behind the counter at an all-night gas station. I read the remark "why can't I describe the aroma of coffee". I fully understood then what LW meant by his writings as a "kind of therapy", and further the metaphysical focus of his intellectual and moral quest. I had always been struck by his method of writing little numbered comments as a kind of Zen koan. My previous backgrounds as a psychedelic pioneer and later theological student and minister, and then (1982) current state as fledgling college Marxist, constituted a ready mind for the kind of thinking that was necessary to stop thinking and look . I am certainly not a scholar of LW. I cannot read German, have no advanced degrees, and have studiously avoided mathematics. I can claim, however to have consumed all of his major writings in English, some repeatedly, and I believe I see "what he was pointing at," even if rather brutishly.

Ludwig Wittgenstein 's father was Karl Wittgenstein who was Jewish while his mother was a Roman Catholic. Ludwig was baptised into the Catholic Church. His parents were both very musical and Ludwig was brought up in a home which was always filled with music, Brahms being a frequent guest. Ludwig's parents had eight children who were all highly gifted both artistically and intellectually. There were three girls, Gretl, Hermine, and Helene, and five boys Hans, Kurt, Rudolf, Paul, and Ludwig. The family were wealthy industrialists having made a fortune in the steel industry and, being one of the wealthiest families in Austria, they were able to provide the best possible education for their children. Perhaps at this stage we should make some comments on Ludwig's brothers and sisters for it will help to understand something of Ludwig's lifestyle as he grew up and also what he went through. Three of the boys, Hans, Kurt, and Rudolf, all committed suicide later in their lives. Paul was a talented pianist who lost an arm during World War I. Ravel composed Concerto for the Left Hand for him. Gretl had her portrait painted by Gustav Klimt, the great Austrian Art Nouveau painter. Hermine wrote an important article on Wittgenstein which is published in [16] and from which we give some quotes.

Ludwig Wittgenstein
Considered by some to be the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein played a central, if controversial, role in 20th-century analytic philosophy. He continues to influence current philosophical thought in topics as diverse as logic and language, perception and intention, ethics and religion, aesthetics and culture. There are two commonly recognized stages of Wittgenstein's thought the early and the later both of which are taken to be pivotal in their respective periods. The early Wittgenstein is epitomized in his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus . By showing the application of modern logic to metaphysics, via language, he provided new insights into the relations between world, thought and language and thereby into the nature of philosophy. It is the later Wittgenstein, mostly recognized in the Philosophical Investigations , who took the more revolutionary step in critiquing all of traditional philosophy including its climax in his own early work. The nature of his new philosophy is heralded as anti-systematic through and through, yet still conducive to genuine philosophical understanding of traditional problems.

Ludwig Wittgenstein, 1930 Ludwig Wittgenstein April 26 April 29 ) was an Austrian -born philosopher who contributed several groundbreaking works to modern philosophy, primarily on the foundations of logic and the philosophy of language . Although numerous collections from Wittgenstein's notebooks, papers, and lectures have been published since his death, he published only one philosophical Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus . At first Wittgenstein believed that the Tractatus definitively solved all the problems of philosophy, and he subsequently gave up philosophical work for several years. During this time he worked as a schoolteacher, a gardener at a monastery, and finally as an architect for his sister's new house in Vienna . Eventually, Wittgenstein returned to philosophy and criticized elements of the Tractatus . The development of a new philosophical method and a new understanding of language would culminate in his second magnum opus , the posthumously-published Philosophical Investigations Although Wittgenstein was raised in Vienna, and considered himself an Austrian, today he is perhaps most closely associated with

Ludwig Wittgenstein
Ordinary Language Philosopher
Born into a hugely wealthy Austrian family, Ludwig Wittgenstein set off at an early age to revolutionize modern philosophy by examining its most core component: our language. His life is considered in three distinct periods, each of which correspond to his philosophical standing at the time. His early work, part of what is called his Tractarian period, is summed up in his book Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921). This was an attempt to reconcile the positions of Frege's apriorism and Russell's atomism in one work. An accomplished logician, Wittgenstein sought to find the true logic behind our misunderstood language, hence his development of Ordinary Language Philosophy. Utilizing such tools as the piicture theory of meaning, he ended up concluding with the thought that Tractatus was just a tool to aid in achieving an understanding of the idea that only statements of natural sciences are meaningful. He concluded that "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent." His next period was one of inactivity. He met with the influential Vienna Circle during the early 30s, and he was soon convinced of a flaw in

The Correspondence Theory of Truth: An Essay on the Metaphysics of Predication

Andrew Newman claims that not only must a correspondence theory explain how sentences and/or propositions correspond with the world, the theory must also have an account of propositions and facts, if facts are needed. This work attempts to do just that to give a more robustly defended correspondence theory of truth. Newman pays special attention to other accounts in the 20th century, specifically Wittgenstein, Russell, and briefly Austin. His own view heavily relies on Armstrong and Russell; ...

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889- 1951) Ludwig Wittgenstein is one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, and regarded by some as the most important since Immanuel Kant. His early work was influenced by that of Arthur Schopenhauer and, especially, by his teacher Bertrand Russell and by Gottlob Frege, who became something of a friend. This work culminated in the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus , the only book that Wittgenstein published during his lifetime. It claimed to solve all the major problems of philosophy and was held in especially high esteem by the anti-metaphysical logical positivists. The Tractatus is based on the idea that philosophical problems arise from misunderstandings of the logic of language, and it tries to show what this logic is. Wittgenstein's later work, principally his Philosophical Investigations , shares this concern with logic and language, but takes a different, less technical, approach to philosophical problems. This book helped to inspire so-called ordinary language philosophy. This style of doing philosophy has fallen somewhat out of favor, but Wittgenstein's work on rule-following and private language is still considered important, and his later philosophy is influential in a growing number of fields outside philosophy.
