Wittgenstein: Beyond the Inner–Outer Picture
December 12, 2018 - December 14, 2018
Seville, 12-14thDecember, 2018
In spite of Wittgenstein’s well known critique of its application to the problems of other minds and self-knowledge, the philosophical picture of the relation between the inner and the outer continues to exercise philosophers from the analytic and non-analytic European traditions. The conference Wittgenstein: Beyond the Inner–Outer Picture, to be held at the Faculty of Philosophy of the University of Seville, on December 12th– 14th2018, will bring together prestigious academics and early career researchers working on the impact of Wittgenstein’s later philosophy of psychology on areas including epistemology, aesthetics, ethics and cultural studies. The conference aims to find ways of overcoming the picture of the inner and the outer in contemporary philosophical debates, such as those on intercultural understanding, the meaning of a work of art, the legitimacy of testimony as a source of knowledge, and feminism.
