2e hands

Artikelomschrijving

Kevin M. Cahill reclaims one of Ludwig Wittgensteins most passionately pursued endeavors: to reawaken a sense of wonder around human life and language and its mysterious place in the world. Following the philosophers spiritual and cultural criticism and tying it more tightly to the overall evolution of his thought, Cahill frames an original interpretation of Wittgensteins engagement with Western metaphysics and modernity, better contextualizing the force of his work. Cahill synthesizes several approaches to Wittgensteins life and thought. He stresses the nontheoretical aspirations of the philosophers early and later writings, combining key elements from the so-called resolute readings of the Tractatus with the therapeutic readings of Philosophical Investigations. Cahill shows how continuity in Wittgensteins cultural and spiritual concerns informed if not guided his work between these texts, and in his reading of the Tractatus, Cahill identifies surprising affinities with Martin Heideggers Being and Time--a text rarely associated with Wittgensteins early formulations.
