36th International Wittgenstein Symposium 2013

Mind, Language and Action


Thanks to all the participants of the 36th International Wittgenstein Symposium and of the 5th Wittgenstein Summerschool (sadly due to the enormous interest we had to turn away many), both events were great successes. On this page, you can find several documents related to the Symposium and/or to the Summerschool. If not made explicit otherwise, all documents and pictures are copyrighted by the Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society.

The following events have taken place:


  • 11 plenary lectures
  • 180 lectures
  • and 5 social events.
