Queen's graduate student edits new Wittgenstein collection

24 February 2016

A newly published collection on the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein has been edited by Queen's graduate student Sebastian Grève and includes an essay by Prof John Hyman.

Wittgenstein and the Creativity of Language focuses on a particular complex of questions that have troubled Wittgenstein scholarship since its very beginnings. The authors re-examine Wittgenstein’s fundamental insights into the workings of human linguistic behaviour, its creative extensions and its philosophical capabilities, as well as his creative use of language. It offers insight into a variety of topics including painting, politics, literature, poetry, literary theory, mathematics, philosophy of language, aesthetics and philosophical methodology.
