Reading Wittgenstein
Considered a genius by some and a charlatan by others, Wittgenstein changed the face of
philosophy in the C20th. Publishing only a handful of publications in his lifetime, his writing
continues to fascinate and frustrate. We will begin with reading his first work, Tractatus Logico-
Philosophicus; completed in 1918 and although less than 100 pages long, it is rich in content and
open to multiple interpretations.
Centred around Wittgenstein’s work and the directions in which it takes philosophy, the direction of
the group will be guided by the interests of its members – the text is a starting point from which to
explore. The approach will be one of open discussion; with Wittgenstein there are no correct
answers, only some that make sense.
No prior experience of philosophy is required only an interest in the subject and a willingness to be
challenged.
