Forms of Life as Forms of Culture

Kristijan Krkač

Abstract



In this paper the authors discuss Wittgenstein’s form/s of life as forms of culture.
In the first part they summarize and explicate major directions in the current
investigation regarding the topic, and in the second part they explicate and defend
forms of life as forms of culture or so called cultural account of forms of life.
This position is compatible with weaker language game accounts, but incompatible with
pure biological and behavioral accounts. In conclusion, the authors discuss the
possibility of ontology of culture as ontology of forms of life.
