While at Loyola University Chicago I served as a teaching assistant for a number of their philosophy faculty and one member of the linguistics department, but mostly I worked for Father Bill Ellos either full or, if shared with someone else, part time Since there were so many Jesuit collegians at the school, the position was almost entirely research oriented, teaching positions being reserved for them My only experience teaching there was in logic.Bill s own dissertation was on Wittgenstein, While at Loyola University Chicago I served as a teaching assistant for a number of their philosophy faculty and one member of the linguistics department, but mostly I worked for Father Bill Ellos either full or, if shared with someone else, part time Since there were so many Jesuit collegians at the school, the position was almost entirely research oriented, teaching positions being reserved for them My only experience teaching there was in logic.Bill s own dissertation was on Wittgenstein, so one of the first things he had me do was to edit it Meanwhile, he very strongly encouraged me to read Wittgenstein on my own and, I believe, counted some of this reading towards an independent study credit As a consequence, I became pretty familiar with the philosopher and even wrote a paper entitled Wittgenstein s World Picture in On Certainty which was delivered at a philosophy conference and ultimately published A copy of that is included here, in GoodReads.Wittgenstein s Lectures on the Foundations of Mathematics were read in the midst of all reading one book by he actually published very little him after another There s been a real Wittgenstein industry involving the creation of books by him from the notes of former students and this is one of them [[ Read ]] ☞ Lectures on the Foundations of Mathematics, Cambridge 1939 ☞ For several terms at Cambridge in , Ludwig Wittgenstein lectured on the philosophical foundations of mathematics A lecture class taught by Wittgenstein, however, hardly resembled a lecture He sat on a chair in the middle of the room, with some of the class sitting in chairs, some on the floor He never used notes He paused frequently, sometimes for several minutes, while he puzzled out a problem He often asked his listeners questions and reacted to their replies Many meetings were largely conversation These lectures were attended by, among others, D A T Gasking, J N Findlay, Stephen Toulmin, Alan Turing, G H von Wright, R G Bosanquet, Norman Malcolm, Rush Rhees, and Yorick Smythies Notes taken by these last four are the basis for the thirty one lectures in this book The lectures covered such topics as the nature of mathematics, the distinctions between mathematical and everyday languages, the truth of mathematical propositions, consistency and contradiction in formal systems, the logicism of Frege and Russell, Platonism, identity, negation, and necessary truth The mathematical examples used are nearly always elementary A great treat for all Wittgenstein enthusiasts Alan Turing, who had also taught a course with the same title but not the same subject, it turns out is present at most of the lectures, and their disagreements form a large part of the book In page 95 Turing says I see your point , to which Wittgenstein replies in an exasperated manner, one would assume I have no point Beautiful. Cambridge 1939, Wittgenstein tiene un ciclo di trentuno lezioni sulla filosofia della matematica, a cui prende parte, tra gli spettatori, il matematico Alan Turing Questo testo rientra a pieno diritto in quello che viene definito il Secondo Wittgenstein , ed un interessante testimonianza della proposta didattica del filosofo austriaco che stata ricostruita attraverso gli appunti di quattro differenti uditori.Se Wittgenstein nel suo Tractatus Logico Philosophicus aveva ridotto spietatamente Cambridge 1939, Wittgenstein tiene un ciclo di trentuno lezioni sulla filosofia della matematica, a cui prende parte, tra gli spettatori, il matematico Alan Turing Questo testo rientra a pieno diritto in quello che viene definito il Secondo Wittgenstein , ed un interessante testimonianza della proposta didattica del filosofo austriaco che stata ricostruita attraverso gli appunti di quattro differenti uditori.Se Wittgenstein nel suo Tractatus Logico Philosophicus aveva ridotto spietatamente la matematica alla logica, in queste lezioni ripensa radicalmente le proprie posizioni e affronta il problema delle ambiguit del linguaggio in relazione alla struttura della comunicazione matematica che a differenza di come Russell o Frege ritenevano non pu essere interamente spiegata con le proposizioni logiche e, soprattutto, confronta i risultati dei matematici con la realt empirica.Seppur frutto di interpretazioni, il lavoro attendibile ed interessante, e chi avr letto di Wittgenstein non faticher a riconoscere tra le righe di questi appunti tutto il suo tormento e il suo desiderio di risposte, nonch il suo affascinante modo di porsi dinanzi alle questioni I got this when our County Library system still had inter library loan before the budget cuts took that perk away The book looked as though it had never been opened, and I suspect it may be the only copy in the entire State, having come from a small college library collection The interchanges between Turing and Wittgenstein are some of the most interesting parts of the Q A during these lectures This is one book I need to acquire for another look It has been almost twenty years since my first I got this when our County Library system still had inter library loan before the budget cuts took that perk away The book looked as though it had never been opened, and I suspect it may be the only copy in the entire State, having come from a small college library collection The interchanges between Turing and Wittgenstein are some of the most interesting parts of the Q A during these lectures This is one book I need to acquire for another look It has been almost twenty years since my first read I may try to get Wittgenstein s other book on the subject which apparently covers the subject indetail it is hard to make one of these reviews about these lectures.a chatty wittgenstein is very interesting to read if you ve read much of his work, you ll know where this is heading, and it heads to those places but you get some of the riffing, which is not present in the same way in even theexpansive of his written works.probably not the best way in to wittgenstein, but if you re already in, a lovely and entertaining part of the pool to swim about in the places where he ll say all that i it is hard to make one of these reviews about these lectures.a chatty wittgenstein is very interesting to read if you ve read much of his work, you ll know where this is heading, and it heads to those places but you get some of the riffing, which is not present in the same way in even theexpansive of his written works.probably not the best way in to wittgenstein, but if you re already in, a lovely and entertaining part of the pool to swim about in the places where he ll say all that is bosh for example are like those little plastic castles that fish seem to like, for some reason so you are now like a fish If you want to understand the basis for the resolute reading of Wittgenstein, just read these lectures, edited or some might say composed by Cora Diamond It s an easy read, and muchclear than Witters own Remarks on the Foundations of Mathematics. Started reading this in March or so, but put it down and can t find it nowargh delight
