Ashgate Wittgensteinian Studies

Series Editor:

Ludwig Wittgenstein was one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century, his work leading to a variety of differing readings which in turn have had a diverse influence on contemporary philosophy. As well as exploring the more familiar Wittgensteinian themes in the philosophy of language, this series will be a centre of excellence for Wittgensteinian studies in mathematics, aesthetics, religion and philosophy of the mind. Wittgenstein's philosophy has proved extremely fruitful in many contexts and this series will publish not only a variety of readings of Wittgenstein's work, but also work on philosophers and philosophical topics inspired by Wittgensteinian perspectives.
