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.
