    Books shelved as wittgenstein: Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein, On Certainty b. Jonathan Beale and Ian James Kidd (eds.), Wittgenstein and Scientism, Routledge, , pp., $, ISBN Reviewed by Anna Boncompagni, University of Florence There is a risk in tackling a topic such as Wittgenstein and scientism.

      In Philosophical Investigations, section , Wittgenstein is discussing the temptation to describe the experience of acting with deliberation (in drawing a line parallel to another, say) as a “quite particular inner” experience.

Anscombe as a means to see Wittgenstein’s thought anew and gain fresh perspectives on contemporary debates. Enabling a discussion of ethics that applies Wittgenstein’s logical considerations to conversations on justice, this book .

The book has three main chapters: on Wittgenstein, Science, and Religion. The first sets out the basic elements of Wittgensteinian philosophy of language that will be appealed to throughout the book. At the end of the chapter, we arrive at this take on truth.

"This collection of essays explores Wittgenstein's significance for the philosophy of religion. Through a discussion of language-games, forms of life, and Wittgenstein's strictures against subliming the logic of our language, we are brought to see the importance of emphasising that to reflect on the reality of God is to reflect on a kind of reality.

This article is based on three assumptions. The first is that Ludwig Wittgenstein's impact in the philosophy of religion has been more a function of the work of those inspired by him than of his own writings on this topic.

The second is that Wittgensteinian philosophers of religion took their primary inspiration from Wittgenstein's later approach to philosophy in general, as manifest in the Cited by: 2.

Wittgenstein stresses the importance of commitment, the practical dimension of religious faith, without denying that it is, or involves, also believing certain things to be true.

So, on this view, while (contrary to non-cognitivism) claims are made by religious folk who say God exists and Jesus rose from the dead, there are often further dimensions of meaning or significance that are lost on the : Stephen Law. Wittgenstein's characterization of religious belief is certainly an adequate description of a relatively small subclass of religious beliefs, one that can be roughly characterized as fideism.

In modern times this view has been associated with the kind of sophisticated Protestant thought that has been influenced by existentialism.
