Description


Martin Munnich interprets Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophy as a critique of culture. This critique stands in the Socratic tradition of thinking which pursues caring for successful conduct of life as its the central theme. Understood in this Socratic way, philosophy is an ethical endeavor which has to always be measured against its value for a meaningful life. In strong contrast, Wittgenstein's philosophy is very often seen as a work of protoscience or somehow superior science. This is a false claim about Wittgenstein's thinking and it is symptomatic of a wide range of academic philosophy having lost its relevance for everyday people's lives. Wittgenstein himself criticized this loss and tried his best to counteract it.
