Virtual Exhibition: LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN – The Tractatus Odyssey

26 APR 2021 — 31 MAY 2021
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus the Austrian Cultural Forum London, in collaboration with the Wittgenstein Initiative and the British Wittgenstein Society, are pleased to present a virtual exhibition on the famous Austrian philosopher and the brilliant, enigmatic book which was to make a major impact on twentieth century philosophy.
Curated by the Wittgenstein Initiative it gives an overview of Ludwig Wittgenstein's life and the path to the creation of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, which can rightly be termed an odyssey. Both in the temporal and spatial sense, as well as Wittgenstein’s intellectual development in the course of writing it, the Tractatus contains all the associations of an exciting, improbable journey.
