Gödel Versus Wittgenstein By Mike Hockney
eBook (ePub): $5.94
Perhaps nothing has been more misinterpreted than Gödel’s incompleteness theorems. Stephen Hawking, adopting the popular misconception, said, “Thus mathematics is either... More > inconsistent, or incomplete. The smart money is on incomplete.” If mathematics is tautology, as Wittgenstein said, mathematics cannot be inconsistent and/or incomplete, and so Gödel’s work cannot be about mathematics. If mathematics is not tautological, mathematics is mired in inconsistency and/or incompleteness, just as Stephen Hawking said, hence is unreliable. If mathematics is non-ontological, it cannot say anything about reality. If mathematics is ontological, it’s the only thing that can say anything true about reality. There can’t be a world where math is a bit true and a bit false. Either the world is wholly mathematical – in which case math and not science is how we must study the world – or the world isn’t mathematical at all, in which case it’s absurd for science to use math.< Less
Commenti a Wittgenstein By Giovanni Piana
Paperback: $20.04

Al "Tractatus logico-philosophicus" di Wittgenstein, Giovanni Piana aveva già dedicato nel 1973 un'impegnativa "interpretazione". In essa, l'ultimo capitolo preparava... More > già il "passaggio al punto di vista del gioco" che ha la sua realizzazione più matura nelle "Ricerche filosofiche". Ai temi principali di quest'ultima opera sono dedicati questi commenti, che chiariscono e discutono i gruppi più significativi delle osservazioni. Lo stile icastico del "Tractatus" è ormai lontano: per illustrare i propri punti di vista Wittgenstein ora lavora come su un quaderno di appunti, servendosi di dialoghi, aforismi, brevi narrazioni, persino di accenni a fiabe possibili; e il commentatore, anziché accompagnare la lettura con chiose pedantesche, così fastidiosamente ricorrenti nella bibliografia wittgensteiniana, ne asseconda lo stile e lo spirito, con vantaggio per la comprensione dei testi, ma anche rinnovando il piacere del leggere.< Less

Wittgenstein, Austrian Economics, and the Logic of Action By Roderick T. Long

Fascinating and thought-provoking, this book shows how the methodology of Austrian economics can be justified and strengthened by grounding it in the philosophy of Wittgenstein. Frege and...

In “Philosophical Investigations”, published in 1958, Ludwig Wittgenstein, an Austrian born Cambridge scholar, expressed his thoughts concerning language. Wittgenstein proposed the idea... More > that philosophy aims to clear up the conceptual confusions that caused by untested use of language. The concept of language-games points at the rule-governed character of language. However, language games do not demand strict and definite systems of rules for every language game, but point to the conventional nature of this type of human activity. Wittgenstein’s hypothesis found its way beyond philosophy. Close observation of the nature of arts and politics resembles that of the nature of games. This book provides a critical analysis of the concept of language game and its prominence in contemporary social science and arts, with privilege of Wittgenstein’s general reflections on philosophy and linguistics.< Less

Il "Tractatus logico-philosophicus" di Wittgenstein rappresenta una delle opere che hanno fatto epoca nella cultura filosofica del secolo XIX. In questo libro Giovanni Piana ne propone una... More > lettura saldandola strettamente ad una nuova proposta interpretativa. Egli sostiene infatti che la teoria del simbolismo forma la premessa per un complesso di punti di vista che risultano comprensibili solo nel quadro dell'accentuazione del momento operativo e calcolistico nell'ambito della filosofia della logica e della matematica. Nella pur vasta bibliografia intorno a Wittgenstein, viene qui formulata per la prima volta la tesi della presenza di un tendenziale formalismo che anticipa la concezione ricorsivista della matematica. Nel capitolo conclusivo dedicato al "punto di vista del gioco" vengono fornite le indicazioni essenziali per la comprensione della svolta di Wittgenstein dopo il "Tractatus" confermando l'efficacia della linea interpretativa proposta.< Less
