The so-called “new direction" of the late Wittgenstein

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


I wish to share with you some reflections about the issue of a supposed “new direction" in the later Wittgenstein philosophy, which is to be recognized particularly in the material concentrated in the lost TS 234, based on MS 144, which is named simply in the recent Philosophical Investigations edition by G.E.M. Anscombe, P.M.S. Hacker and J. Schulte 2 Philosophy of Psychology – A Fragment 3 . In general I agree with the arguments in favour of the existence of that “new direction", but I argue also that that claim must be qualified in a certain way. In order to make more concrete my argumentation I will choose two topics that to my mind illustrate and substantiate the existence of this supposed new direction.
