Wittgenstein on consciousness in “Philosophical Investigations”

Kristijan Krkač

Abstract



In this paper the authors present (1) Wittgenstein's understanding of the problem
of consciousness, (2) his objections to Cartesian and behaviourist theories, (3)
and his solution in terms of his “theory” or “overview” of human nature,
sentient beings, and life. Central texts used are taken from PI and Z.
