20 December 2010, Tractatus in Holland

Date: Monday 20 December 2010
Location: Zaal 008, Instituut voor Wijsbegeerte, Matthias de Vrieshof 4, Universiteit Leiden

In the week December 13-20, 1919, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Bertrand Russell met at The Hague in order to discuss - line by line - the manuscript of the Tractatus so that Russell could write his preface. Now 91 years later, the Philosophical Institute at Leiden, with support from the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Logica en de Grondslagen van de Exacte Wetenschappen, devotes a day to the careful study of Wittgenstein’s classical book.

The speakers at this Tagung will be Harm Boukema (Nijmegen), Jaap van der Does (Amsterdam), Martin Stokhof (Amsterdam), Göran Sundholm (Leiden), and Albert Visser (Utrecht).
