Details

The Wittgenstein Research Group at the University of Bergen, Norway is pleased to announce the conference "The Tractatus after 100 Years", marking the 100th anniversary of the publication of the German edition of Ludwig Wittgenstein's groundbreaking work "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus" (Logisch-philosophische Abhandlung). The Tractatus exerted an enormous influence on the development of 20th Century Analytic Philosophy and continues to inspire philosophical reflection today.

The workshop will be held in Skjolden, Norway, where Wittgenstein spent considerable time working on several occasions spanning the period from 1913 to 1950. Skjolden lies at the end of the spectacular Sognefjord, the longest fjord in Norway.

Confirmed speakers include Cora Diamond, Juliet Floyd, David Stern, Wolfgang Kienzler, and Jose Zalabardo.

Those wishing to attend the conference without presenting a paper should inform the organizers by no later than March 15th as there is limited space. While there are no funds available for transportation or accommodation, the organizers may be of assistance in making recommendations.

The conference will also be the 12th annual conference of the Nordic Wittgenstein Society. It is being organized by the Wittgenstein Research Group at the University of Bergen, with funding provided by the Faculty of the Humanities.

The holding of the conference is conditional upon an improvement of the Covid situation.
