Abstract


Lecture in Bergen 2012, Oct. 25. In this lecture I concentrate on how Wittgenstein developed his method of perspicuous representations („übersichtliche Darstellungen“) in opposition to causal explanations in the sciences, and how this line of argument connects to his claim that philosophy is „really more a working on oneself“.
