IBNA- The conference, “130 Years Ludwig Wittgenstein: 1889-2019” will be held at Sofia University, Bulgaria on October 16-17, 2019.
According to IBNA correspondent quoting Philevents.org
, Sofia University, Bulgarian Society for Analytic Philosophy, together with the kind support of the Austrian Embassy in Bulgaria have organized the conference to celebrate the 130th birthday of Ludwig Wittgenstein.
Ludwig Wittgenstein, the Austrian-born British philosopher, regarded by many as one of the greatest and most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, played a central role in the origination of analytic philosophy.
He still influences current philosophical thought in topics as diverse as logic and language, perception and intention, ethics and religion, aesthetics and culture. What is beyond question is that by showing the application of modern logic to metaphysics, via language, Wittgenstein provided new insights into the relations between world, thought and language and thereby into the nature of philosophy.
Topic areas of the conference are:
Philosophy of Language
Logic and Philosophy of Logic
Philosophy of Mathematics
Articles on the following topics will be particularly welcomed: Wittgensteinian Conceptions of Linguistic Communications and Wittgensteinian Themes in Self-knowledge, Self-ascription, and Self-expression.
The deadline for submissions is September 8th, 2019.
