Ludwig Wittgenstein

Podcast Filosofie

“De mens heeft de vaardigheid talen te bouwen, waarmee zich elke betekenis laat uitdrukken, zonder er enig idee van te hebben, hoe en wat elk woord beduidt. – Zoals men ook spreekt, zonder te weten, hoe de afzonderlijke geluiden voortgebracht worden. De omgangstaal is een deel van het menselijk organisme en niet minder gecompliceerd dan deze.“ Zo drukte Ludwig Wittgenstein uit dat we taal heel vanzelfsprekend gebruiken, zonder dat we doorhebben hoe complex het is.Hoe wilde Wittgenstein de taal opschonen en reconstrueren? Waarom vond hij dat je over de werkelijk belangrijk dingen, niet kan spreken, maar moet zwijgen? En op welke manier ziet hij taal als een spel en wat zegt dat?Te gast is Jean Paul van Bendegem De denker die centraal staat is Wittgenstein
