Wittgenstein and Physics

November 22, 2014

Event Navigation

This inaugural event will be a one-day conference on Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophy and how this developed in light of the emerging concepts in the physics of the time, since the very nature of Wittgenstein's career provides a unique progression through various of the key developments in both physics and philosophy in the late 19th and 20th centuries. Topics will cover his early years in Boltzmann's Vienna, then his study in Planck's (and then Einstein's) Berlin, then his move to Rutherford's Manchester and eventually his arrival to join the cohort of great physicists in Cambridge in the 1930s and 1940s.
