Product Overview

Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was by any reckoning one of the major modern philosophers. Raised as a Catholic in late-nineteenth-century Vienna, he later gave up practicing his religion; yet, as journal notes and many anecdotes attest, he remained deeply if ambivalently interested in religion throughout his life. Students of the philosophy of religion are familiar with his lectures on religious belief. For the rest, however in the vast collection of commentary and criticism that has accumulated over the years, little attention has been paid to his religious interests.
Beginning with a largely biographical study of Wittgenstein, Kerr argues that Wittgenstein's philosophy was partly prompted by his strong reaction against what he regarded as an excessively rationalistic type of Catholic apologies that he was taught in his early school years. His serious interest as a student at Cambridge in experimental psychology and in the works of Freud is documented.
