CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: "Perspectives on Wittgenstein's Philosophy of Mathematics, 24-25 Aug 2012, Zurich, SWITZERLAND

Title: "Perspectives on Wittgenstein's Philosophy of Mathematics"
Date: August 24-25 th, 2012
Place: Philosophisches Seminar Universitt Zrich
Scientific Organizer: Hans-Johann Glock

Conference Description:
The conference aims to present, promote and provoke research on Ludwig 
Wittgenstein's philosophy of mathematics. Wittgenstein is one of the most 
important philosophers of the 20^th century and he considered his most 
significant contribution to be in the philosophy of mathematics. Nevertheless, 
this contribution has received far less attention than the rest of his work. 
Recent research shows that early interpreters often failed to appreciate the 
radical nature of his critique of the orthodoxy. It also suggests that his 
philosophy of mathematics still contains much from which the field can profit. 
We therefore intend to discuss the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy of 
mathematics, the debates it has already provoked and the lessons it might hold 
for contemporary debates.
