Ethics and the activity of philosophy in early Wittgenstein
Marks, Owen Chandler
MetadataShow full item record
Wittgenstein’s early work is well known for its seminal importance to the philosophy of language and logic during the second half of the 20th century and beyond. This thesis will explore some of the literature around aspects of his work that are less referenced, though equally important: ethics and the nature of the philosophical enterprise. This review of a portion of the surrounding literature, along with exegesis of the early texts with these particular aspects in mind, will contribute to a broader understanding of Wittgenstein as an ethical thinker.
