Wittgenstein's Whewell's Court Lectures : Cambridge, 1938 - 1941, From the Notes by Yorick Smythies Hardback

Edited by Volker Munz, Bernhard Ritter

Description

Wittgenstein s Whewell s Court Lectures contains previously unpublished notes from lectures given by Ludwig Wittgenstein between 1938 and 1941.

The volume offers new insight into the development of Wittgenstein s thought and includes some of the finest examples of Wittgenstein s lectures in regard to both content and reliability. * Many notes in this text refer to lectures from which no other detailed notes survive, offering new contexts to Wittgenstein s examples and metaphors, and providing a more thorough and systematic treatment of many topics * Each set of notes is accompanied by an editorial introduction, a physical description and dating of the notes, and a summary of their relation to Wittgenstein s Nachlass * Offers new insight into the development of Wittgenstein s ideas, in particular his ideas about certainty and concept-formation * The lectures include more than 70 illustrations of blackboard drawings, which underline the importance of visual thought in Wittgenstein s approach to philosophy * Challenges the dating of some already published lecture notes, including the Lectures on Freedom of the Will and the Lectures on Religious Belief
