Call for Papers: colloquium &lquo;Wittgenstein's Notebooks 1914-1916&rquo;. Université du Québec à Montréal and Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Montréal and Trois-Rivières, Canada), on May 4-6, 2017.

The colloquium &lquo;Wittgenstein's Notebooks 1914-1916&rquo; will take place at the Université du Québec à Montréal and Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Montréal and Trois-Rivières, Canada), on May 4-6, 2017.

The aim of the colloquium is to encourage a more systematic study of Wittgenstein's Notebooks 1914-1916, hoping to achieve a better understanding of his earliest philosophy, and to understand how they prefigure or differ from those expressed in the Tractatus. The hope then is to reach, on a broad range of topics, a better understanding of the Tractatus itself and the originality of the Notebooks.

  • Pasquale Frascolla (Università degli Studi della Basilicata, Potenza)
  • Sébastien Gandon (Université Blaise-Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand)
