PHIL 621 - Wittgenstein/20th C Euro
In this seminar we will be reading most of Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations, as well as exploring a variety of contemporary philosophical debates that have been inspired and shaped by that work. Rather than working through the text sequentially, our approach will be topics-based: Issues include the nature of normative practices, rules and rule-following, language games and communicative practices, the private language problem and the epistemic status of ‘inner’ states, the nature of perception, and pragmatist theories of meaning.
