Description: 

Wittgenstein is arguably the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, and is frequently cited in connection with developments in theology and the philosophy of religion. This course will focus on his accounts of language and meaning in both his early and later works, and on how his thought relates to religious belief and commitment. It will examine the role of language and the possibility of talk about God and explore the implications of our understanding of language for how we think about reality, knowledge, and God. Major paper.
