Simon van Rysewyk, author of Wittgenstein Forum, has very nicely uploaded a PDF of Wittgenstein’s Obituary. You can see it here.
I’m glad that it didn’t focus too much on his philosophical ideas. That is, it did describe his personal life to the extent that Wittgenstein was a religious man, in several ways.
One interesting distinction the obituary contained was of that between “school” and “method” of philosophy. Doesn’t a new method of philosophy at the least motivate and at the most “is identical with” a new school of philosophy? But then perhaps are we assuming that, for instance, Existentialism has one characteristic method?
I’m not sure, but what I do know is that apparently a simple Obituary doesn’t fail to spark my philosophical curiosity where it concerns language games.
Kudos to Simon for that.
