Wittgenstein Reading Group

This takes place every two weeks in London to provoke informal but serious discussion of Wittgenstein's philosophy. The reading/topic for the following session is decided (democratically) at the end of each meeting.

If you are interested in coming along please register your interest by forwarding your email address to a.brockless@heythrop.ac.uk or shaun.choquet@kcl.ac.uk. You will then receive the selected reading attached to an email about a week before each session.

The meetings are held at a Starbucks on The Strand with a spacious downstairs area that they reserve for the group every second Friday between 4:30 and 6:30. The address is: Starbucks, 32 Fleet Street, London EC4Y 1AA.

@Law -- You need to fix the first email link "toa.brockless@heythrop.ac.uk" should be "a.brockless@heythrop.ac.uk".

Did you read Ernest Gellner, Words and Things, on the philosophy of Wittgenstein? A pretty old book, from end of fifties, when Gellner was in his thirties. He is very destructive of this kind of philosophy. What is your opinion? I have the impression, that he identifies Wittgenstein as one of the predecessors of post-modern "Anything goes."
