Obituary of Jaakko Hintikka 1929 – 2015

Obituary by Sami Pihlström

Jaakko Hintikka (January 12, 1929 – August 12, 2015)

Jaakko Hintikka, one of the most distinguished philosophers in the world, died in Porvoo on August 12, 2015, at the age of 86.

Hintikka studied philosophy at the University of Helsinki in the late 1940s and early 1950s, completing his doctoral degree in 1953 with the thesis, Distributive Normal Forms in the Calculus of Predicates. He was a Junior Fellow at Harvard University in 1956-1959. In 1959, he was appointed to the Chair of Practical Philosophy at the University of Helsinki. In addition to the University of Helsinki, he worked as a professor at Stanford University, the Academy of Finland, Florida State University, and finally (since 1990) at Boston University, retiring in 2014.

Even though he was primarily settled in the United States for several decades, he never lost contact with his home country and home university; he continuously led research projects in Finland and trained an entire generation of philosophers, to the extent that a couple of decades ago almost all Finnish philosophy professors were his former students. Hintikka was by any imaginable criteria one of the most influential Finnish academics of all times.

Hintikka authored or co-authored more than thirty books and hundreds of scholarly articles. His main works include Knowledge and Belief (1962), Models for Modalities (1969), Logic, Language-Games and Information (1973), Time and Necessity (1973), The Intentions of Intentionality (1976), Investigating Wittgenstein (with Merrill B. Hintikka, 1986), The Principles of Mathematics Revisited (1996), Socratic Epistemology (2007), and a six-volume series of Selected Papers (1996-2004).

In 2006, Hintikka received the most prestigious recognition a philosopher can get, a volume of his own in the famous series, Library of Living Philosophers, thus joining thinkers like Bertrand Russell, Albert Einstein, John Dewey, Rudolf Carnap, Jean-Paul Sartre, Karl Popper, Willard Van Orman Quine, and his own teacher Georg Henrik von Wright. In 2005, he was awarded the Rolf Schock Prize in logic and philosophy “for his pioneering contributions to the logical analysis of modal concepts, in particular the concepts of knowledge and belief”, and in 2011, he received the Barwise Prize from the American Philosophical Association. Hintikka also received a number of honorary doctorates from several universities and was an honorary member of several academic societies. He was awarded the Grand Cross of the Order of the Lion of Finland in 2011.

Hintikka was one of the most important and original philosophers of the latter half of the twentieth century (and the beginning of the twenty-first); with his contributions to logic, philosophy of language, epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of mathematics, and related areas, he to a significant degree shaped the field itself, and quite literally created novel approaches and entire research orientations.

Jaakko Hintikka’s last academic affiliation was his Honorary Fellowship at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies. Upon returning to Finland in 2010, he arrived at the Helsinki Collegium first as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow; he was later appointed as a permanent Honorary Fellow in 2011. He also donated his massive scholarly library to the Helsinki University Library. Missing its Honorary Fellow, the Helsinki Collegium remains deeply grateful for having had the privilege of hosting the academic research conducted by Jaakko Hintikka during his final active years 2010-2015.

Obituary by Ilkka Niiniluoto

Dear Colleagues,

It is my sad duty to tell the news that the Finnish logician and philosopher Jaakko Hintikka died at the age of 86 after a brief illness on August 12, 2015. In the previous week, he participated actively as a speaker in the CLMPS and LC at the University of Helsinki, including the congress banquet on last Friday.

Jaakko Hintikka was born on 12 January 1929 in the Helsinki county (Vantaa) in Finland. He studied mathematics (with Rolf Nevanlinna) and philosophy (with Georg Henrik von Wright) at the University of Helsinki since 1947, and defended his doctoral dissertation on distributive normal forms in 1953. After his Ph.D. studies he worked as junior fellow at Harvard University in 1956-59, and became in 1957 (independently of Stig Kanger) the founder of possible world semantics. In 1962 he published his groundbreaking work Knowledge and Belief on epistemic logic. In 1959 Hintikka was appointed, at the age of 30, professor of Practical Philosophy at the University of Helsinki. In 1964 he became also professor of philosophy at Stanford University which - with Patrick Suppes and Dagfinn Föllesdal - was one of the leading centers of philosophy of science and philosophical logic. Hintikka’s new interests included inductive logic and semantic information. He shared his time between Stanford and Helsinki until the end of the 1970s. In 1965 Hintikka started his work with D. Reidel’s Publishing Company (later Kluwer Academic Publishers) in Holland as the editor-in-chief of the journal Synthese and the book series Synthese Library. This activity, which has continued until 2002, made Hintikka the most influential editor of philosophical works in the English speaking world.

In 1970 Hintikka was appointed to a Research Professorship in the Academy of Finland which allowed him to establish a research group of younger Finnish scholars working mainly in logic, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, and history of philosophy. As a teacher and supervisor, Hintikka has been highly influential though the richness of his new ideas and research initiatives. Many of the former students of Hintikka have been appointed to chairs in philosophy (Risto Hilpinen, Raimo Tuomela, Juhani Pietarinen, Ilkka Niiniluoto, Simo Knuuttila, Veikko Rantala, Juha Manninen, Lauri Carlson, Esa Saarinen, Matti Sintonen, Gabriel Sandu).

In 1978 Jaakko Hintikka divorced his first wife Soili and married an American philosopher Merrill Bristow Provence (1939-87). In 1978 Jaakko and Merrill were appointed at the Florida State University in Tallahassee. After Merrill Hintikka’s death in 1987 Hintikka married a Finnish philosopher Ghita Holmström. In 1990 Hintikka became professor of philosophy at Boston University and moved to Marlborough, MA. He retired from Boston in 2014 and moved back to Finland.

Besides his activities in research, teaching, and publication, Hintikka served in many important positions in international organizations, among others vice president of Association for Symbolic Logic in 1968-71, vice president of the Division of Logic, Methodology and Philosophy of Science of the International Union of History and Philosophy of Science (DLMPS/IUHPS) in 1971-75 and president in 1975, president of the Charles S. Peirce Society in 1997, and the chairman of the organizing committee of the Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy in 1998. As a proof of the appreciation of Hintikka’s work, a volume dedicated to him in the Library of Living Philosophers was published in 2006.

Hintikka’s publications cover an exceptionally wide range of topics. During his career in more than 60 years he has published about 40 books or monographs, edited 20 books, and authored more than 300 scholarly articles in international journals or collections. His main works deal with mathematical logic (proof theory, infinitary logics, IF-logic), intensional logic and propositional attitudes, philosophy of logic and mathematics, philosophy of language (game-theoretical semantics, quantifiers, anaphora), philosophy of science (interrogative model of inquiry), epistemology, and history of philosophy (Aristotle, Descartes, Kant, Peirce, Frege, Wittgenstein).

Obituary of Em. o.Univ.-Prof. Dr. Rudolf Haller 1929 – 2014

Obituary by Friedrich Stadler (Professor for the History of Science and the Phlosophy of Science, chairman of the Institute Vienna Circle, University oif Vienna and member of the executive committee of the ALWS)

Prof. Rudolf Haller (1929-2014)

Am 14.2.2014 verstarb in seiner Heimatstadt Graz der renommierte der österreichische Philosoph em.Univ.Prof. Rudolf Haller nach langer schwerer Krankheit im 85. Lebensjahr.

Haller wurde 1929 in St. Gallen geboren, studierte Philosophie, Soziologie, Geschichte und Kunstgeschichte in Graz und ging nach Abschluss seines Studiums als Postdoc nach Oxford. Im Jahre 1961 habilitierte er sich für Philosophie an der Universität Graz und lehrte danach auch in München und Hannover. Im Jahre 1967 wurde er zum Ordinarius für Philosophische Grundlagenforschung berufen, wo er bis zu seiner Emeritierung 1997 in Lehre und Forschung mit den Schwerpunkten analytische Philosophie, österreichische Philosophie, speziell über Bolzano, Brentano, Mach, Meinong, Wiener Kreis, Wittgenstein und Popper wirkte. Daneben hat er 1983 mit Hilfe des Wissenschaftsministeriums (durch Norbert Rozsenich) die außeruniversitäre „Dokumentations- und Forschungsstelle für österreichische Philosophie“ aufgebaut und bis zu seiner Pensionierung geleitet, das zum wichtigsten Zentrum für die Erforschung der Philosophie in Österreich wurde. Zusammen mit Adolf Hübner, Elisabeth und Werner Leinfellner, Paul Weingartner zählte er seit der Gründung 1976 zu den Pionieren der „Österreichischen Ludwig Wittgenstein Gesellschaft“, die bis heute jährlich die Internationalen Wittgenstein Kongresse in Kirchberg/Wechsel ausrichtet. Damit, und mit seinen zahlreichen Einladungen renommierter ausländischer PhilosophInnen nach Graz, hat er zur frühen Internationalisierung und Öffnung der Philosophie beigetragen, die lange Zeit nach dem Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs ein provinzielles Schattendasein fristete. In diesem Sinne hat er auch zusammen mit dem Verfasser wesentlich bei der Gründung und wissenschaftlichen Profilierung sowie als langjähriger Vorsitzender des wissenschaftlichen Beirates des Instituts Wiener Kreis mitgewirkt, das sich inzwischen zu einem international angesehenen Institut an der Fakultät für Philosophie der Universität Wien entwickelt hat. Wichtige Impulse gehen bis heute zudem von der von ihm 1975 gegründeten Zeitschrift „Grazer Philosophische Studien. Internationale Zeitschrift für analytische Philosophie“ aus, sowie von der von ihm lange herausgegebenen Buchreihe „Studien zur österreichischen Philosophie“. Dort erschienen auch seine „Studien zur österreichischen Philosophie“ als Band 1 und als Band 10 seine „Fragen zu Wittgenstein und Aufsätze zur österreichischen Philosophie“ (1986). 1993 veröffentlichte er sein Buch „Neopositivismus“ und zuletzt engagierte er sich im Grazer Moderne-Projekt, z.B. mit der Herausgabe des Sammelbandes „Nach Kakanien. Annäherung an die Moderne“ (1996).

Ein besonderer Beitrag war die Mitarbeit an der Gesamtausgabe von Alexius Meinong, die Herausgabe der gesammelten Schriften Otto Neuraths und der Veröffentlichungen der Österreichischen Ludwig Wittgenstein Gesellschaft. Seine Verdienste um die philosophische Forschung und Wissenschaftsphilosophie werden überdauern, speziell seine Arbeiten zu Wittgenstein, zum Wiener Kreis und zur Entwicklung einer typisch österreichischen Philosophie seit dem 19. Jhdt. (mit der Merkmalen von Sprachkritik, symbolischer Logik, und empiristischer Ausrichtung) im Gegensatz zur deutschen Philosophie dialektischer oder transzendentaler Natur („Neurath-Haller-These“). Zwei Festschriften, zahlreiche Gastprofessuren und Auszeichnung sind Zeichen dieser großen internationalen Karriere eines herausragenden Philosophen und Menschen, der durch seine einzigartige Fachkenntnis, Offenheit, Kreativität und Menschlichkeit einen unersetzbareren Vertreter der intellektuellen Öffentlichkeit und Wissenschaft in und außerhalb Österreichs darstellte. Er wird diesem Lande und der Scientific Community fehlen. Rudolf Haller hinterlässt seine Frau Ingeborg und seinen Sohn Gregor.

Reports of the 4th Ludwig Wittgenstein Summerschool

Volker Munz asked participants of the 4th Ludwig Wittgenstein Summschool, both lecturers and students, to give their impression on the summerschool. Here are the reports they have written:



David Stern

Dear Volker,
I understand that you would like a written report on my impressions of the 4th Wittgenstein Summer School.  Let me start by saying that I thought it was not only extremely successful, but also a very pleasant and intellectually stimulating event for all concerned.  The thirty or so participants were clearly very committed to the project of giving a close reading of the Blue Book.  After Hans Sluga provided a brief overview of some of the main philological, historical, and philosophical issues raised by the text during our first hour, the group spent fifteen hours, spread over four consecutive days, working our way through the first half of the Blue Book.  I strongly believe that this kind of close reading, in which a diverse group shares their different approaches to the text, measuring the strengths and weaknesses of those approaches page by page, and day by day, is the best way of coming to grips with Wittgenstein’s writing.  Reading the text by oneself, or drawing on the guidance offered by a traditional lecture course, cannot offer the perspective provided by a collaborative discussion.  Such a setting provides an opportunity to appreciate the wide range of issues raised by the text, and the way in which Wittgenstein develops and interweaves his discussion of those topics in the course of a such a carefully constructed and composed text.
Beyond the scheduled sessions, the discussion continued over lunch and late into the evening; the level of immersion and commitment displayed by the participants was quite extraordinary.  Over half of them had taken part in a previous summer school, and the prior institutional history, together with the lively interest in this unusual opportunity to take part in a close reading of a key Wittgenstein text, was a crucial factor in the success of the School.  I also note that the vast majority will be staying on for the Symposium, and many will be presenting papers on Wittgenstein-related topics.  I have been working on the Blue Book for over thirty years, and have frequently used it as a text in my teaching; nevertheless, I learned a great deal about the Blue Book over the last few days, and am very grateful for the opportunity to take part in the summer school.
Sincerely,

David Stern



Hans Sluga

Lieber Volker,

Die Wittgenstein Summer School 2012 war für mich ein ganz außergewöhnliches Ereignis. Die Gelegenheit, einen wichtigen Wittgenstein Text mit einer Gruppe von hochtalentierten internationalen Studenten gründlich durchzusprechen kommt nicht oft. Unsere Gespräche waren, wie Du weißt, intensiv und dauerten oft informell bis in die späte Nacht. Nicht nur die Studenten sondern auch ich und, wie ich glaube, David Stern haben dabei ungeheuer viel gelernt. Ich selbst habe mich über die Jahre hin oft und eindringlich mit Wittgensteins Blauem Buch befasst—aber nie mit so reicher Ausbeute an neuen Gedanken und Einsichten. Es war auch ein Vergnügen, eine neue Generation von Wittgensteinspezialisten kennenzulernen. Ich bin mir gewiss, dass die Beziehungen, die zwischen den Teilnehmern der Summer School geknüpft worden sind, noch lange halten werden.

Für mich selbst war die Summer School die größte Bereicherung des Symposiums, die ich mir vorstellen kann. Schon heute hat sich aus weiteren Gesprächen mit den Studenten ergeben, dass die jetzt stattfindenden Vorträge für sie durch die Summer School eine ganz neue Dimension und Bedeutung erhalten haben.

Ich darf Dir und der gesamten Leitung des diesjährigen Symposiums daher für die Organisation der Summer School danken. Für die kommenden Jahre kann ich sagen: Nur weiter so!

Dein
Hans


Sebastian Greve

Die Summer School war wie schon zuvor sehr schön, tatsächlich fand ich sie so gut wie noch nie; das mag an meiner Vorliebe für das Blue Book liegen. Ich fasse gern meine positiven Erfahrungen kurz auf Englisch zusammen.
‘The summer school has been most rewarding to me. The unique opportunity to discuss Wittgenstein’s philosophy 24 hours a day (literally) is of indispensable value to every student with a serious interest. The discussions in the seminar as well as the conversations during the rest of the days have been immensely helpful, and I am looking forward to next year already!’

Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit,
und herzliche Grüße,

Sebastian Greve.


Florian Gstöhl

Es war meine zweite Summer School an der ich teilgenommen habe. Das herausragenste an dieser Sommer School ist das Zusammentreffen von Wittgensteininteressierten von überall von der Welt die sich in dieser Woche explizit mit Wittgenstein auseinandersetzen. Es ist einfach großartig eine Gruppe vorzufinden, die von verschiedenen Denkrichtungen beeinflusst sich mit Wittgenstein auseinander setzt. In dieser Form ist die Summer School einzigartig und ich hoffe
es wird noch viele mehr geben.

Ganz liebe Grüße

Florian Gstöhl


Maja Jaakson

Hi Volker,
Sure thing.  The ALWS summer school is now something I look forward to attending every year; it provides an excellent opportunity to take up a close study of Wittgenstein’s work with top scholars.  Although the atmosphere is relaxed and congenial, the sessions themselves are intense and invigorating.  I’ve also had the pleasure of meeting many clever, insightful and truly lovely people at the summer school and symposium.

Best,

Maja


Joseph Zanella

Here are my notes on the 2012 summer school. Hope they are of some use.
From a recent conversation at the University of Copenhagen: —How long were you there [in Kirchberg]? —Five days. —What did you do? —We read the Blue Book. —All of it? —No, we skipped some. —How far did you get? —Page thirty-three.
The above covers the question “What happened?” fairly well. That is pretty much what happened at the summer school this year. The question this fairly typical conversation often raises in its wake is “Why would one want to pay to spend five days with thirty-odd people very slowly reading one’s way through a minor book by Wittgenstein?”
If I am honest I have to say: I don’t know. I don’t have an answer to that question. That is, not one that makes sense in the climate and age in which we live, one that would count as a reason. Then again on other occasions I might turn that around and say, that precisely because it does not makes sense to do so in this climate and age I’m doing it anyway in order to, perhaps, balance the score a bit. But that doesn’t seem right either.
So why do it? Maybe to answer that question I have to talk about what didn’t happen. What didn’t happen is: 1) we did not find out who Wittgenstein is; 2) we did not find out exactly what his philosophical theory is; 3) we did not find out what the Blue Book is ultimately or essentially about; 4) we did not find out what the book’s main argument is; 5) we did not find out whether the book had a main argument; 6) we did not find out whether the book had even one argument… I could go on. It must seem horrifying.
“What the hell were you doing for five days!” —Reading the Blue Book beginning from page one and getting as far as page thirty-three. And it is one of the best things I’ve ever taken part in. And perhaps this is what’s important here. The doing of it.
Rhees says that Wittgenstein, while getting the PI ready for publication, often said: “Whatever I do I mustn’t hurry.” Wittgenstein also said that he would wish that his work at least would get someone to think thoughts of their own. His writing, to me, is always best when read aloud. I think he says something somewhere to the same effect. It is well known that his lectures contained large stretches of silence. The sort of penny-drop silence that a remark in any one of his books might strike a reader with. Being made to stop and forced think. Or forced to get thinking going again.
So what did I get out of the summer school? Maybe this: that I was made to slowly work my way through thirty-three pages of the Blue Book and it got me thinking. And that is enough, really. It is not something one is often made to do.

Best wishes,

Joseph Zanella

    Travel and living


    International Wittgenstein Symposium - Conference Center: View on Google Maps

    Travel

    How to get to Kirchberg am Wechsel by train:

    (1) When you have arrived in Vienna, take a bus or taxi to Wien Hauptbahnhof and

    (2) take a train to Gloggnitz, a town about 70 kilometers (45 miles) south of Vienna. Trains in the direction of Gloggnitz depart almost every hour, but you may have to change trains at Wiener Neustadt.

    (3) From Gloggnitz, you can reach Kirchberg, which is 13 kilometers (8 miles) distant, by bus (40 minutes) or taxi (15 minutes). We suggest that you take a taxi from Gloggnitz to Kirchberg. You might like to share a taxi with other participants, to cut costs.  On Sunday 6th of August 2017, the official arrival day, a member of the Wittgenstein Symposium Crew will be at Gloggnitz railway station between 12am and 6pm to help you with your luggage and answer your questions. During this time, the taxi ride will also be free.

    We thank Mobilitätszentrale Industrieviertel for helping us with the taxi ride on 5th of August.

    (4) In Kirchberg, please go directly to the conference center where the conference office is located. The conference office will be open from 9.00 to 21.00 h on Saturday, 4 August 2017, and from 9.00 to 22.30 h on Sunday, 5 August 2017. You will receive an information folder and the address of your accommodation there.

    (5) A free shuttle service will be available throughout the week for those accommodated outside Kirchberg. (Due to the increase in attendance, the symposium has outgrown the small town.) Please note that hotels and guest-houses are cheap and clean, but simple. The average room has neither radio nor TV, and you should bring your own cosmetics, including soap and shampoo.

    Eating and Drinking

    Although vegetarianism is less popular in Austria than in the UK or in the USA, some restaurants offer vegetarian food during the symposium week. If the menu has no special vegetarian section, consult the hors d’oeuvres or the desserts section. The Vorspeisen (hors d’oeuvres) section should contain salads, and the Nachspeisen (desserts) usually include Palatschinken (pancakes filled with jams, cream cheese or ice cream) or Kaiserschmarrn (sweet pancakes cut up and served with stewed fruit). August is a good month for mushrooms, and the Eierschwammerl (chanterelles) are a special treat.

    In Austria, the most popular drinks are beer, wine and Most (Austrian cider), made from apples and pears. Most, at its best, is both tastier and healthier than the average wine, but there are variations in production, so start with a small glass, to try it.

    There is ample choice of non-alcoholic lemonades and fruit-juices. In hot weather, a refreshing gespritzter Apfelsaft (apple-juice mixed with soda) can be recommended.

    It is customary to give a tip of 5 to 10 percent of the bill, provided that you are satisfied with service, food and drink (if not, not!).

    Money

    In a small town like Kirchberg, most people prefer cash to cheque or credit card. So please be prepared to pay your bills in cash, using Euro. There are two banks in Kirchberg, where you can change money (from Monday to Friday), if necessary. In addition, one of these banks, the Raiffeisenkasse at Markt 235, operates an Automatic Telling Machine, which accepts most of the internationally recognized credit cards.

    Dress

    Dress has always been casual in Wittgenstein Symposia. There are only three possible exceptions: opening ceremony; dinner for the symposium participants; concert. For these events more formal dress is suggested, but is of course not obligatory.

    Weather

    August is normally hot and dry, but there may be rainshowers and thunderstorms, and late evenings and early mornings can be very fresh.

    In 1974, the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society was founded as a local organization in Kirchberg am Wechsel, Lower Austria. One reason for this choice of place was that in the twenties Wittgenstein taught at elementary schools in the surrounding area. In 1976, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Wittgenstein’s death, a small conference took place, the ‘Wittgenstein Days.’ In retrospect, the designation “Wittgenstein Days” was changed to “First International Wittgenstein Symposium.” Shortly afterwards, a committee was founded. This committee was responsible for the much larger Second International Wittgenstein Symposium and all subsequent symposia. The symposia and other activities are sponsored mainly by the government of Lower Austria and the Federal Ministry for Science and Research.

Scientific organization and direction: Volker A. MUNZ (Klagenfurt / Graz)

The second Wittgenstein Summer School “Augustine’s Picture of Language: Names, Samples and Simples” is dedicated to the introductory paragraphs of Ludwig Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations. Those paragraphs are particularly important to see crucial changes and continuities in Wittgenstein’s later philosophy. ILWI was again able to gain two of the most well known Wittgenstein experts, Peter Hacker, and Joachim Schulte.

Obituary of Univ.Prof. DDr.h.c. Werner Leinfellner 1921 – 2010

Werner Leinfellner 1977

Mit tiefer Trauer und Bestürzung müssen wir zur Kenntnis nehmen, dass am 6. April 2010 Univ.Prof. DDr.h.c. Werner Leinfellner in einem Wiener Spital verstarb. Seine Frau Elisabeth war am 4. Jänner dieses Jahres gestorben.

Werner Leinfellner zählte zu den Pionieren der wissenschaftlichen Philosophie, Wissenschaftstheorie sowie zur Spiel- und Entscheidungstheorie im Geiste des Wiener Kreises und er hat zusammen mit seiner Frau Elisabeth 1976 durch die Mitgründung und langjährige wissenschaftliche Begleitung der Österreichischen Ludwig Wittgenstein Gesellschaft in Kirchberg am Wechsel (NÖ) wesentlich Akzente zur Internationalisierung des philosophischen Lebens in der Zweiten Republik gesetzt. Obwohl er in Österreich nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg aufgrund der widrigen wissenschaftlichen und politischen Verhältnisse beruflich nicht Fuß fassen konnte und an der University of Nebraska, Lincoln, seine internationale akademische Karriere startete, hat er die Kontakte zu seiner Heimat nie abgebrochen und ist nach seiner Emeritierung wieder nach Wien zurückgekehrt. Zahlreiche Auszeichnungen und Ehrungen dokumentieren die Bedeutung seines Lebenswerkes.

Seit der Gründung des Instituts Wiener Kreises im Jahre 1991 fungierte er in dessen wissenschaftlichen Beirat und er hat die Arbeit des Instituts durch seine Expertise und durch eigene Beiträge einzigartig bereichert.

Sein Ableben stellt einen unersetzlichen menschlichen und intellektuellen Verlust für das wissenschaftliche Leben und die intellektuelle Öffentlichkeit dar und wir werden ihn zusammen mit Elisabeth in großer Dankbarkeit in Erinnerung behalten.
Unsere Anteilnahme gilt seiner Tochter Ruth, ihrer Familie und seinen Verwandten.

Univ.Prof. Dr. Friedrich Stadler, Wissenschaftlicher Leiter des Institutes Wiener Kreis und Mitglied des Vorstandes der ÖLWG
Wien, 8. April 2010

By now the conference is a major philosophical institution.

Julian Nida-Rümelin, Universität München

Es gibt viele philosophische Gesellschaften, aber keine ist wie diese: Keine bietet Jahr für Jahr das atemberaubende Alpenpanorama durch die große Glaswand einer Schulturnhalle, die Vortragenden aus aller Welt sehen nur ihr Publikum, das Publikum neben dem Vortragenden die Wolken, wie sie über die Bergrücken ziehen.
[...] ich bin — fast — von Anfang an dabei gewesen und ich habe hier mehr gelernt, als auf allen anderen Kongressen, die ich in dieser langen Zeit besucht habe. 

Nicholas Rescher, University Pittsburgh

The International Wittgenstein Symposium is unique as a forum that brings together with annual regularity philosophers from across the world. Its value to the profession — and to the many individuals that constitute it — is so great that if the institution did not exist, we would have to (re-)invent it. 

John Searle, University of California, Berkeley

To all of us who have participated over the years, the symposium has been a great success for three decades. From the very early symposia the meetings in Kirchberg generated a combination of enthusiasm, high intellectual standards, collegiality and pleasure in the delightful surroundings of the village of Kirchberg.

Obituary of Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elisabeth Leinfellner 1938 – 2010

Elisabeth Leinfellner 1985

Die Mitgründerin der Österreichischen Ludwig Wittgenstein Gesellschaft, Elisabeth Leinfellner, ist am 4. Jänner 2010 von uns gegangen. Traurig und dankbar denken wir an das Viele, das sie für uns getan hat und laden alle, die mit unserer Gesellschaft verbunden sind, ein, ihr ein ehrenvolles Andenken zu bewahren.

Der akademische Werdegang von Elisabeth Leinfellner führt sie über ihre Studienorte in Wien und München in die USA, wo sie am Doane College in Crete/Nebraska und an der University of Nebraska unterrichtet. Elisabeth Leinfellner ist Sprachwissenschaftlerin, mit klarer Ausrichtung ihrer Interessenslage auf Sprachphilosophie – Semantik und Sprachkritik – sowie Wissenschaftstheorie. In diesem Zusammenhang ist insbesondere ihre hervorragende Kenntnis des Werkes des Philosophen und Literaten Fritz Mauthner zu erwähnen. Ihre Dissertation handelt vom Schrifttum Hermann Hesses, ihre Habilitation von semantischen Netzen und Textzusammenhang.
1986 kehrt Elisabeth Leinfellner endgültig, nach zwanzig Jahren in den USA, nach Österreich zurück, wo sie am Institut für Sprachwissenschaft in Wien weiter wirkt. Gastprofessuren führen Elisabeth Leinfellner an die University of Nebraska, die University of Michigan, wo ihr die Ehre eines „Max Kade Distinguished Visiting Professors“ zuteil wird, und an die Universität Rom.
Elisabeth Leinfellner hat das Honors College der University of Pennsylvania in Wien organisiert, ist tätig am Programm-Komitee der Vienna Summer University des Instituts Wiener Kreis, und ist Ehrenpräsidentin der Bibliotheksinitiativen Wien. In dieser Funktion hat sie jährlich weithin beachtete wissenschaftliche Konferenzen organisiert, zuletzt im November 2009 ein zweitägiges Symposium mit dem Generalthema „Darwin und die Folgen“.
Die Ergebnisse ihrer wissenschaftlichen Arbeit sind unglaublich vielfältig und mit einem Blick nicht zu erfassen. In einem „50-Jährigen Seminar“ hat sie, oft gemeinsam mit ihrem Gatten, Herrn Professor Werner Leinfellner, weit mehr als 200 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst, welche „ihre“ Wissenschaften nachhaltig beeinflussen und den Stand der Forschung prägen. Die Bandbreite ihrer Publikationen umfasst Untersuchungen zu „Symbolen in der Politik“ und „Politikolinguistik“, geht über Habermas und Ockham bis hin zu gender-spezifischen Themen, wie man heute sagen würde: „Die redselige Frau, der schweigsame Mann und andere sprachliche Stereotypen“.

Pictures of Elisabeth LeinfellnerDie Bedeutung von Elisabeth Leinfellner für die Österreichische Ludwig Wittgenstein Gesellschaft ist einzigartig und unvergleichbar. Sie hat gemeinsam mit ihrem Gatten, mit Rudolf Haller, Paul Weingartner und dem mittlerweile ebenfalls verstorbenen Ehepaar Lore und Adolf Hübner anlässlich des 25. Todestages Ludwig Wittgensteins die „Wittgenstein-Tage“ 1976 organisiert. Im Jahr darauf beginnt mit der Tagung „Wittgenstein and his Impact on Contemporary Thought“ die eigentliche Erfolgsgeschichte der Kirchberger Wittgenstein-Symposien, die das Werk Wittgensteins auch für die aktuelle systematische Philosophie in ihrer vielfältigen Ausprägung fruchtbar gemacht haben. Gemeinsam mit Werner Leinfellner, Hal Berghel und Adolf Hübner trägt Elisabeth Leinfellner nicht nur für die organisatorische, sondern auch für die wissenschaftliche Leitung der 1977-Tagung die Verantwortung.
Elisabeth Leinfellner ist maßgeblich bei der wissenschaftlichen Erarbeitung des Internationalen Wittgenstein Symposiums in den 1970er bis in die 1990er beteiligt. Sie ist von 1994-1997 Präsidentin der ÖLWG, von 1997 bis 2006 Vizepräsidentin, danach Mitglied des Vorstands und des Consulting-Boards. Jahre-, ja jahrzehntelang wirkt sie als Mitherausgeberin der „Schriften der Österreichischen Ludwig Wittgenstein Gesellschaft“. In dieser Funktion hat sie unter anderem als Co-Editorin bei der Neuherausgabe von Ludwig Wittgensteins „Wörterbuch für Volksschulen“ fungiert.
Elisabeth Leinfellner hat wie kein/e andere/r das Ziel unserer Gesellschaft, „die Aufklärung des Wirkens von Wittgenstein in der Zeit seiner Tätigkeit als Volksschullehrer in Niederösterreich und Erhaltung seiner Wirkungsstätten (Otterthal und Trattenbach)“ (Satzungen der ÖLWG), unterstützt. Zahlreiche Medienartikel in der WIENER ZEITUNG, in der PRESSE, dem STANDARD, den NIEDERÖSTERREICHISCHEN NACHRICHTEN stammen aus ihrer Feder bzw., später, Tastatur. In den „Dimensionen – die Welt der Wissenschaft“ ist sie zu Gast bei Ö1, einmal (1988) sogar im tschechischen Rundfunk. Besondere Verdienste erwirbt sie sich, gemeinsam mit Sascha Windholz, bei der Betreuung der Wittgenstein-Dauerausstellungen in Kirchberg und in Trattenbach. Jahr für Jahr führt sie die Kongress-TeilnehmerInnen kompetent und in ihrer unnachahmlich liebenswürdigen Art durch diese Museen. Von großer Beachtung und Wirkung ist ihr und Sascha Windholz’ Buch „Ludwig Wittgenstein. Ein Volksschullehrer in Niederösterreich“, 2005 bei Sutton erschienen.
Für all diese Verdienste wird Elisabeth Leinfellner auch öffentlich geehrt: Vor allem mit dem „Großen Ehrenzeichen für Verdienste um das Bundesland Niederösterreich für Wissenschaft und Kunst“.

Seitdem ich im Jahre 2000 im Vorstand der ÖLWG begonnen habe, arbeite ich mit Elisabeth Leinfellner zusammen. Mit ihrem Wissen über die Geschichte unserer Gesellschaft, aber auch durch ihre so vielfältigen Kontakte, durch ihr Know-How in allen die Gesellschaft betreffenden Belangen hat sie mir in vielen kritischen Situationen entscheidend geholfen. Besonders erwähnt seien ihre Beziehungen zur Künstlerschaft, der wir so manches hochkarätige Event bzw. so manche bildnerisch wertvolle Umrahmung unserer Symposiumswoche verdanken; aber auch ihre Mitwirkung am Aufbau des Archivs der ÖLWG. Elisabeth ist immer da gewesen für die Wittgenstein Gesellschaft. Bei ihr habe ich gespürt, dass ihr die Gesellschaft ein wichtiges, man möchte sagen ein Herzensanliegen ist. Elisabeths Hilfestellungen und ihr Einsatz sind nie vom Streben nach individuellen oder partikulären Vorteilen geprägt – ihr geht es um das Ganze. Und: Elisabeth ist nicht nur immer (das ist keine Übertreibung!) ansprechbar gewesen, sie hat auch angepackt. Sie hat nicht nur geredet, sie hat gehandelt. Vielleicht ist das einer der Gründe, warum der Name Elisabeth Leinfellners, der weltweit angesehenen Wissenschaftlerin, auch in jedem Gasthausstammtisch rund um Kirchberg mit Wertschätzung und besonderer Sympathie genannt wird.

Elisabeth Leinfellner ist nicht mit allem zufrieden gewesen, was in der Gesellschaft geschehen ist. Sie war eine leidenschaftliche, mitunter scharfe Kritikerin. Das hat uns verbunden. Menschen, die alles richtig finden, gibt es genug.

Elisabeth Leinfellner hat auch in schwierigen Lebenssituationen nie ihren Mut verloren. Die Krankheit, die ihre letzten Lebensjahre geprägt hat, konnte sie niemals hindern, Zukunftsperspektiven zu entwickeln, in ihrer beständigen Lust auf Neues sehr konkrete Projekte anzugehen: Die neue Summer-School hat es ihr sehr angetan, ebenso die Idee von „Wittgenstein Lectures“ in Wien, aber auch an anderen Universitätsstandorten. Mein letzter Mailwechsel mit ihr stammt vom 21. Dezember 2009, in dem wir über eine Kunst-Ausstellung während des nächsten Symposiums diskutiert haben.

Wir werden auch diesmal – und in der Zukunft – versuchen, Deinen Elan umzusetzen.
Danke für alles. Es war eine gute Zeit mit Dir Elisabeth!

Publications

Publications of the ALWS

From 1978 to 2005 Hölder-Pichler-Tempsky, later: oebv-hpt, Vienna, published the Schriftenreihe der Wittgenstein Gesellschaft. During those years 34 volumes appeared, most of them are still available at the ALWS-office in Kirchberg.

In 2006, the Publications of the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society started with a new series, edited by ontos verlag. The new series contains the official proceedings of the ALWS-conferences and of their special workshops and started with the proceedings of the symposium 2005 on Time and History, organized by Friedrich Stadler and Michael Stöltzner.
The new series is also open for other high-quality publications, especially on the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein and its influence on contemporary systematic philosophy. Submissions are welcome and will be reviewed by a committee of the ALWS.

Since 1993, the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society itself has published an additional book series, Contributions of the Austrian Wittgenstein Society/Beiträge der Österreichischen Wittgenstein Gesellschaft. They contain the contributed (& reviewed & accepted) papers of the Wittgenstein Symposia and are published as “Pre-Proceedings” at the beginning of each Symposium. They may be purchased from the society. Please note that some of the older volumes are sold out.

Goals

The Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society pursues two main goals: As implied by the name “Wittgenstein Society,” its first goal is the analysis, tradition, and dissemination of Wittgenstein’s philosophy. Confronted with the mass of present-day Wittgenstein research in the English-speaking countries, this might look like carrying coals to Newcastle. But it should be kept in mind that in many European countries Wittgenstein’s philosophy, and Analytic Philosophy in general, were – and up to a point still are – in a minority position. This situation is the reason for the society’s second main goal: to continue a philosophy which had strong roots in Austria (as well as in other countries): Analytic Philosophy (Wittgenstein) and philosophy of science (Vienna Circle). The emphasis, then, is not on the history of philosophy. The aim is to discuss present-day problems in the framework of a philosophy which is methodologically explicit and whose results are presented perspicuously. The spectrum of philosophical problems extends from philosophy of science, epistemology and logic to ethics and the humanities. The Austrian Wittgenstein Society is well aware that such a philosophy cannot – and should not – be an arcane discipline with the society acting as its church. The society, then, strives to be a forum for all those who are interested in a scientifically oriented philosophy. The most important forum are the annual Wittgenstein Symposia and the publications of the Wittgenstein Society.

Entrance to the Conference Center

General Notes to ALWS

In 1976, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Wittgenstein’s death, the „Wittgenstein Tage“ (’Wittgenstein Days’; 24-25 April) took place in Kirchberg. In retrospect, they would come to be called the „First International Wittgenstein Symposium“. It rained, and the red, white, and red Austrian flags and the blue and yellow Lower Austrian ones dripped with water. A brass band played before the local monastery, someone sang along with it, an official gave a speech, the (first) Wittgenstein documentation in the monastery was formally opened, from the stage of the Hotel Post’s dining room four committee members delivered papers on main aspects of Wittgenstein’s philosophy and biography.
The Second International Wittgenstein Symposium was an unexpected success, just like the proceedings volume, Wittgenstein and his Impact on Contemporary Thought, which went through two editions and has been out of print for a long time. While the ‘First’ Wittgenstein Symposium was a local affair where only 4 committee members delivered papers, the number of speakers rose to about 120 at the second Symposium.

Without doubt, the Wittgenstein Symposia were an enormous international success. Their general topic changed from year to year; they always offered a survey of the most recent developments in Wittgensteinian analysis and Analytic Philosophy, Philosophy of Science, and related disciplines. The most important and the most famous philosophers but also distinguished scientists (among them future Nobelists) were invited to give papers. The gemütliche (’comfortable’) inns and pubs in the village contributed in no small degree to an atmosphere of scholarly - and occasionally not so scholarly - discussion and exchange of ideas. On such occasions the scene is well described by Wittgenstein: When philosophizing you have to descend into the old chaos and feel comfortable in it.

In principle, our goals have remained the same from the beginning until today: (1) the discussion of Wittgenstein’s philosophy, of that form of philosophy which was initiated by Wittgenstein, and, in general, of that philosophy which originated with the Vienna Circle. (2) We have always incorporated the newest philosophical developments, and we always will, provided they agree with the methodological principles developed by Wittgenstein and Analytic Philosophy, the Vienna Circle, and Philosophy of Science, in other words: We want to discuss present-day problems in the framework of a philosophy which is methodologically explicit and whose results are presented perspicuously. As to (1), our emphasis has shifted somewhat. In the beginning, we considered it an important part of our philosophical task to bring back in person certain philosophers and other scholars who had emigrated from Austria, and a form of philosophy and science which had been driven out by the Nazis as well: the first generation of the Vienna-Circle philosophers and their followers, and the philosophy of the Vienna Circle and its satellites as well. So many years have passed between the first symposium of 1976 and now that it is already the third generation of scholars to whom this philosophical legacy is being handed down. The overall conception is governed by the view that the society and its symposia are not open only to a closed community of scholars, a Wittgenstein church, as it were. On the contrary, we always wanted to be, and are, an open forum, an agora, a market place, or, to paraphrase Popper’s words, an open society for anyone interested in these specific kinds of philosophy. One of Wittgenstein’s metaphors applies here very well: Raisins might be the best thing about a cake; but a bag full of raisins is no better than a cake, and a bag full of raisins does not make a cake. We did not, and will not, pick out the raisins only.

Permanent Wittgenstein Exhibition in Trattenbach

Ludwig Wittgenstein taught elementary school in several small villages in Lower Austria between the years of 1920 and 1926. From 1920 to 1922 he was resident in the village of Trattenbach.

For some time Wittgenstein occupied a small room in a building called the “Schachnerstüberl” (no. 82, named after one of its owners), which now houses the exhibition. The “Schachnerstüberl”, built in 1838, is now under protection as a national historical monument.

The exhibition is not a collection of memorabilia; it does, however, contain some items related to Wittgenstein, such as the Cambridge bed that he designed. This object gives us a glimpse into Wittgenstein’s personality as a perfectionist, in line with the Wittgenstein house in the Kundmanngasse in Vienna.

A famous quotation from John Donne states that “No man is an island, entire of itself.” If we look at Wittgenstein’s life as an elementary teacher in Trattenbach and other villages, we might easily get the impression that he tried to be just such an island. People in Trattenbach surely perceived him as an island, since to them he was an aristocrat among the poor and a scholar among farmers and laborers. Unlike his neighbors, Wittgenstein did not speak the local dialect (or any dialect, for that matter), rarely visited the inns or went to church, did not dress in the way a teacher was expected to dress, and did not exchange greetings. A local witness describes Wittgenstein as a man who, to put it mildly, “made a strange impression”.

We know that in reality no man is an island. For that reason the exhibit has chosen to portray Wittgenstein in the context of local history. The focus of the exhibit is not Wittgenstein IN Trattenbach but, rather, Wittgenstein AND Trattenbach, as his residence there is closely tied to the history of the village and the times.

Initially, Wittgenstein chose to live in Trattenbach because to him it seemed to be the ideal place for his career as a teacher. The history of this Austrian village is interesting not only because of Wittgenstein, but because it provides us with a unique view of the sociocultural environment of the early 20th century. The exhibit has chosen to explore the historical development of Trattenbach before, during, after, and beyond Wittgenstein’s presence, as all history must be viewed in context.

Another Wittgenstein documentation is located nearby in Kirchberg am Wechsel, the site of the annual International Wittgenstein Symposia. Its theme is “Reality and Myth”. Seeing both permanent exhibitions in conjunction is recommended, since visiting both offers us a more complete understanding of the context in which Wittgenstein lived and worked, as well as offering us a glimpse of the rich and fascinating history of Austrian village life.

In 1974, the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society was founded as a local organization in Kirchberg am Wechsel, Lower Austria. One reason for this choice of place was that in the twenties Wittgenstein taught at elementary schools in the surrounding area. In 1976, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of Wittgenstein’s death, a small conference took place, the ‘Wittgenstein Days.’ In retrospect, the designation “Wittgenstein Days” was changed to “First International Wittgenstein Symposium.” Shortly afterwards, a committee was founded. This committee was responsible for the much larger Second International Wittgenstein Symposium and all subsequent symposia. The symposia and other activities are sponsored mainly by the government of Lower Austria and the Federal Ministry for Science and Research.
