The British Wittgenstein Society was founded in 2007 in an effort to rekindle what seemed a waning interest in the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein. To mark the success of this endeavour, and the Society's 10th anniversary, the 2017 BWS annual conference will be devoted to celebrating Wittgenstein's contribution to thought across philosophy and other disciplines. Our guest speakers will be:
Louise Barrett (Lethbridge, Canada) on primatology
Michel Bitbol (CNRS, Paris) on philosophy of science and mathematics
Peter Hacker (Oxford) on philosophy of mind
Edward Harcourt (Oxford) on ethics and aesthetics
Richard Harper (Swansea) on communications technology
Peter Hobson (UCL) on psychology
Sandra Laugier (Sorbonne, Paris) on social philosophy
Ray Monk (Southampton) on Wittgenstein's place in 21st century thought
Paul Standish (UCL) on philosophy of education
The conference will take place at Beales Hotel, Hatfield on 29th-31st July, 2017. We look forward to your participation in making this an exceptional event – both intellectually and convivially!
