Wittgenstein on Forms of Life and the Nature of Experience
To what extent is the form of our life fixed, i.e. is there a form of life or forms of life? How does this bear on the nature of experience? These are two Wittgensteinian questions in need of clarification. Wittgenstein on Forms of Life and the Nature of Experience sheds light on a much exploited but rarely analysed topic in Wittgenstein scholarship while addressing central themes of contemporary philosophy. Bringing together essays from some of the leading scholars in the field, the book concentrates on Wittgenstein’s concept of Lebensform(en), and more specifically its evolution in the author’s thought until his death in 1951.
This book is part of a series entitled Lisbon Philosophical Studies – Uses of Languages in Interdisciplinary Fields edited by António Marques and Nuno Venturinha in partnership with Peter Lang.
