Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus: A Centenary Celebration

  • 5 May 2021 — 5 May 2021
  • 5:30PM

Together with the British Wittgenstein Society and the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking programme we invite you to join us for a special celebration of the 100th anniversary of the publication of the German edition of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.

Bringing together leading philosophers from all over the world, this online symposium turns the spotlight on Ludwig Wittgenstein's groundbreaking work which exerted an enormous influence on the development of 20th Century Analytic Philosophy and continues to inspire philosophical reflection today.

This symposium is part of our centenary celebrations of the Tractatus; which inlcudes a viewing of Derek Jarman's 1993 film: Wittgenstein and a virtual exhibition.

Co-organised with Danièle Moyal Sharrock and Constantine Sandis from the British Wittgenstein Society.
