New Directions – Fall Reading Group

The scope of the blog is going to broaden a bit now. If you’re just joining us, I think the most interesting philosophical post so far is “Ein Zeichen sind wir” and that the most interesting interpretive post so far is “The First Rule of Wittgenstein Club.” Both of these deal with the Tractatus rather than the Investigations. I do hope to come back to the Investigations in more detail at some point in the future.

However, this term I am supervising a directed reading of Simone Weil and Peter Winch’s book on her, “The Just Balance.” So you can expect substantial discussion of both over the next few months.

P.S. If, like me, you sometimes wander the internet in search of humorous diversion, the funniest post is the one immediately prior.
