Schriftenreihe der Wittgenstein-Gesellschaft. 19. Vienna: Hölder-Pichler-Tempsky. 336 p./Bd. I; 313 p./Bd. II; 347 p./Bd. III (1990).
The first two volumes of this three-volume set contain invited papers, the third one gives a selection of shorter papers which were presented at the workshops of that Wittgenstein Symposium.
The first volume presents, together with the Opening Address, 31 papers grouped according to the topics: the philosophy of the Tractatus-period; philosophy of logic and mathematics; the transitory period of the thirties; the task of philosophy; ethics and religion. Volume II contains another 29 papers devoted to the topics: philosophy of language; descriptive psychology; Wittgenstein’s biography and specific questions of interpretation; the problem of truth; Wittgenstein’s position in the philosophical tradition; the relation between philosophy of language and philosophy of mind.
The 77 shorter papers of volume III fall under the following topics: the interpretation and ontology of the Tractatus; phenomenology and grammar; philosophy of mathematics; on what cannot be said and on the transcendental; questions of semantics; the problem of rule-following; on “On Certainty”; Wittgenstein’s style of thinking; ethics and religion.
At all, these volumes present an impressive wealth of material concerning the philosophical ideas of Wittgenstein and their impact on the philosophy of the 20th century. Only a few of them, yet, are directly related to the philosophy of mathematics and logic.
