British Wittgenstein Society
Welcome to the British Wittgenstein Society!
Hosted by the University of Hertfordshire.
The British Wittgenstein Society was founded in 2007 by Dr Daniele Moyal-Sharrock with, as its aim, to ensure that Ludwig Wittgenstein’s philosophy continue to play a fertile and creative role in 21st century thought – both in philosophy and across disciplines. The BWS achieves this primarily, but not exclusively, through its
- annual conference
- biannual lecture series
- quarterly newsletter
- conference proceedings
- conference videos and lecture videos
- book reviews
The BWS website provides regularly-updated information on Wittgenstein-related conferences, lectures, reading groups and other events or news. The publication of Wittgenstein-related books is posted and archived by year of publication (since 2007). Videos related to Wittgenstein, and more specifically videos of BWS conferences and lectures are available.
The BWS was founded as a British focal point for research, information and exchange of ideas among Wittgenstein scholars, students and non-academics throughout the world. To that end, it welcomes new members from all countries. To join, please visit the BWS website (membership is complimentary).
The BWS also has a FB page and a Twitter account: @BritWittSoc.
The BWS is run by its Executive Committee, all part of the UH Philosophy group:
- Dr Daniele Moyal-Sharrock, BWS President
- Dr Ian Ground, BWS Vice-President
- Prof. Constantine Sandis, BWS Secretary
