Wittgenstein

In-depth examination of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s later philosophy, its historical context, and its wide and lasting influence on many areas of philosophical inquiry. The course will focus primarily on Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations and On Certainty, but will also devote some time to the works of Wittgenstein’s intellectual forebears as well as those of his philosophical heirs.
