In related news, AUs 3rd annual philosophy conference (3-5 March 2010) will also be devoted to Wiggy.
Finally, heres one of Wiggys central insights set to music:
that clip is god awful.
Couldn’t he have just whistled it?
Can the layperson jump into this book cold, or will he need to have first read and otherwise be familiar with Wittgenstein’s works?
Well, I haven’t read it yet (apart from my and my colleagues’ contributions), so it’s hard to say.
Well, that clip was ridiculous in the extreme. If only if had been sayable rather than showable.
I’m going to be like a kid at Christmas when this book comes in the mail.
