Culture and Value

  1. Ludwig Wittgenstein Georg Henrik von Wright Peter Winch says:
    Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein 26 April 1889 29 April 1951 was an Austrian British philosopher who worked primarily in logic, the philosophy of mathematics, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of language.Described by Bertrand Russell as the most perfect example I have ever known of genius as traditionally conceived, passionate, profound, intense, and dominating , he helped inspire two of the twentieth century s principal philosophical movements the Vienna Circle and Oxford ordinary language philosophy According to an end of the century poll, professional philosophers in Canada and the U.S rank both his Tractatus Logico Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations among the top five most important books in twentieth century philosophy, the latter standing out as e one crossover masterpiece in twentieth century philosophy, appealing across diverse specializations and philosophical orientations Wittgenstein s influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences, yet there are widely diverging interpretations of his thought.

  1. Wittgenstein was heavily influenced and inspired by Otto Weininger, possibly the greatest Jew and most honest to ever come out of Europe Wittgenstein, also a Jew, also attended the same elementary school as Adolf Hitler In fact, a photo exists 100% authenticated to be Hitler and almost positively Wittgenstein where the two a sitting fairly close to one another as grade school students Here is a quote from Culture and Value that I feel sums up the whole feeling of the book Humor is not a mood but [...]

  2. Reading Wittgenstein a page at a time in the bathtub is very close to a perfect state of being for me Culture and Value is a great non title because this is exactly what the book is about I think what I find astonishing about his writing and thinking is that it s very open ended If I have to compare him to someone else, it would be Jean Luc Godard At least the quotation part, and of course Godard takes things that are floating out there and puts it together in his own fashion but Wittgenstein s [...]

  3. I really enjoyed reading this book of notes, aphorisms, marginalia, and excerpts Wittgenstein is often so perceptive, and has a nice way of turning a phrase But importantly, Wittgenstein is provocative The challenge for me that Wittgenstein offers is to think about the mundane in strikingly new ways I guess that is what makes him such a good philosopher he can take the familiar and make it alien in the best way possible.One of the themes that I found especially interesting in this book was that [...]

  4. Very interesting book which reveals a lot about the author himself, his views, opinions and interests It complements greatly his other books and helps to understand the essence of his philosophy.

  5. Full of collected thoughts, marginalia, and assorted ponderings, Culture and Values gives a glimpse into how Wittgenstein s mind works, as well as his views on music, Christianity, philosophy, his own work, and of course language This book gave me a whole new appreciation for what you might call the literary genre of remarks Wittgenstein s careful brilliance in an open ended format is richly stimulating Consider this remark from 1937 The horrors of hell can be experienced within a single day tha [...]

  6. A hugely enjoyable collection of philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein s comments about art, music, language, culture, Jewish life, religion in general, and a number of other topics These writings were certainly never intended to be published, and one gets the slightly uncomfortable though pleasurable impression that Wittgenstein would not want them to be read It s not in the same league as his serious woks of philosophy, but it s an excellent way to understand his views on earthly topics The book i [...]

  7. Were music to ever not be ridiculous and disposable, we should have to make it so to save us some work in disposing of it.Reliability remains today so unreliable, as if relying on something is even itself subject to circumstance I can rely on him spits out the word rely as something redoubtably foreign as opposed to I can s and him s natural bases in verifiable experience.If I were Wittgenstein, I would have zombied up out of the ground in 1977, when G.H von Wright was about to publish Vermischt [...]

  8. Reading about Wittgenstein s philosophy earlier and later is a struggle It seems so dry and sterile In Culture and Value Wittgenstein comes alive This is a collection of his miscellaneous thoughts through the years about music, Shakespeare, philosophy and, especially, thoughts about his own thinking and writing Here, W has a texture that, off hand, makes him interesting as a man than as a philosopher Yet, it may be both are intimately connected after all Fare well , he simply comments, and then [...]

  9. Ever wanted to read one of the greatest philosophers of all time in five minute increments Ever wish that the great thinkers would stop being so obscurantist and speak about stuff that s not quite so abstract Here s your chance These are the little bits culled from notebooks and margins that don t fit into philosophical works, scattered lines about whatever he may have been thinking about at the time Wittgenstein s opinions on everything from music and architecture to why he was a philosopher to [...]

  10. Like always, deceivingly simple and self evident and yet unintelligible for pages till you resurface at that a ha moment of blinding and blazing light and understanding I never know where he is leading to with his open ended inquiries but I hold fast coz I always get the feeling that is is onto something Always rewarding.

  11. Vermischte Bemerkungen Culture and value a selection from the posthumous remains, Ludwig Wittgenstein 1889 1951 1381 188 9647387202 168 173

  12. This collection of ruminations offers readers a softer take on Wittgenstein and his very difficult philosophical concepts I would suggest this gateway book if you want to get deeper into this very unique philosopher.

  13. Architecture exists to ennoble something Consequently, when there is nothing to ennoble, there can be no architecture WittgensteinNow, take a look at this kunstler eyesoreml

  14. This book could also be titled Wittgenstein s thoughts about stuff Wittgenstein wrote one book Tractatus Logico Philosophicus during his life, and left behind a lot of unpublished writing, some of it following a few discrete lines of thought, much of which has now been published under a variety of titles This little volume is a collection of remarks, over the course of about 20 years or so, that didn t really fit anywhere else Because Wittgenstein s an enjoyable writer and thinker, these are fun [...]

  15. Uma filosofia bastante trivial sobre cultura e valores Ludwig W apresenta nos senten as bastante pr ticas quase como um manual de fuga ao quotidiano.Um apelo filosofia de valores Put a man in the wrong atmosphere and nothing will function as it should He will seem unhealthy in every part Put him back into his proper element and everything will blossom and look healthy But if he is not in his right element, what then Well, then he just has to make the best of appearing before the world as a cripp [...]

  16. This book of aphorisms comment upon religion specifically Christianity , honesty, mathematics, music, Shakespeare and , but these are reoccurring topics.In one of my favorites Wittgenstein speculates upon why he lies to himself when the the difference between being truthful and of lying is equivalent to that of the difference between drinking bitter or sweet coffee Yet, he lies to himself Culture and Value is a good place to get a taste of a great mind of the 20th Century.

  17. Ludwig Wittgenstein s CULTURE AND VALUE is a wonderful collection of aphoristic remarks on music, religion, philosophy, genius, writing, language, being Jewish, being human, etc which is selected from the author s notebooks between 1914 and 1951 Of course, such reading makes one pause and think, but at the same time one is deeply moved by Wittgenstein s language His words are just very potent I highly recommend this book.

  18. Just purchased 12 28 2010 A collection of miscellaneous remarks from Wittgenstein s manuscripts unpublished in other works Aphorisms and short remarks in the original German and in English translation I m reading the German slowly, trying to absorb and comprehend, then seeing how the English translator renders these Von Wright selections Something I can pick up and put down, pick up again

  19. Fist book by him I encountered, back in high school Probably my first exposure to aphorisms, and this knocked me out tho I ve never fully understood or even attempted to deduct his larger philosophical glance I find him humorous in the way that I find someone like Godard to be funny.

  20. First thought Wittgenstein is a great writer Second thought dude makes a joke about balls and pockets Third thought the effortless banality of Brahms s overwhelming ability Fourth thought why aren t you reading this wonder of fragments and aphorisms yet

  21. Though Philosophical Investigations is Wittgenstein s most important work, this one is interesting and personally meaningful.

  22. Non technical writings read while acting as the teaching assistant for Dr William Ellos, a Jesuit philosopher and Wittgenstein specialist, at Loyola University Chicago.
