Book ID: 91693

Wittgenstein's House reads his two main philosophical texts, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations, in relation to an experience that intervened between them: his design and construction of the Stonborough-Wittgenstein house in Vienna. Arguing that the practice of architecture occupies not just a historical position between Wittgenstein's early and late philosophy but a conceptual position as well, the book demonstrates that Wittgensein's practice of architecture constitues a fundamental component in the development of his philosophy of language from its early to late phases.
