Virtual Conference: Wittgenstein in Times of Crisis
Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic has caused several crises both personal and collective. Those of us who have not lost someone have experienced the disruption of our every day life nevertheless. The situation of social distancing and heavily restricted public life as well as the uncertainty regarding the appropriateness of actions and our immediate future is worth being reflected on philosophically. The work of the Austrian-British philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein includes the issues of loneliness, isolation and privateness as well as of intersubjectivity and the limits of science.
The aim of this workshop is to bring together Wittgenstein scholars to discuss aspects of the present situation from the perspective of Wittgenstein’s philosophy. We invite contributions to all aspects of Wittgenstein’s work that are prompted by the current crisis.
The event will be held ongoing basis, with two or three sessions a month.
