About this product
- DescriptionAlthough Wittgenstein is often held co-responsible for the so-called death of man as it was prounced in the course of the previous century, detailed description of his alternative to the traditional or Cartesian account of human being has so far been available. By consulting several parts of Wittgenstein's later oeuvre, Subjectivity after Wittgenstein aims to fill this gap. However, it also contributes to the debate about the Cartesian subject and its demise by discussing the criticism that the rethinking of subjectivity received, for it has been argued that the anti-Cartesian turn in continental philosophy has lead to a loss of a centre for both ethics and politics. By further exploring the implications of the Wittgensteinian account of human being, this book makes it clear that a n-Cartesian view on the subject is t necessarily ethically and politically inert. Moreover, it argues that ethical and political arguments should t automatically take precedence in a debate about the nature of man.
