Together with the British Wittgenstein Society and the BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking programme we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the publication of the German edition of the Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus with a symposium.
Bringing together leading philosophers from all over the world, this online symposium turned 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.
The symposium is part of our centenary celebrations of the Tractatus; which inlcuded a viewing of Derek Jarman's 1993 film Wittgenstein and a virtual exhibition.
