Das Drama des Zeitgeistigen – Die 'Ludwig-Wittgenstein-Industrie' als lieu de mémoire des österreichischen Wissenschaftsbetriebs

Abstract

Ludwig Wittgenstein's 50th anniversary of his death two years ago was the reason for remembering someone who was never forgotten. These recent publications and events are challenging to look at the 'drama' of Wittgenstein's instrumentalisation by sience, influenced by society and politics. It's to ask why he was so popular in various disciplines and also each epoque had their Wittgenstein: These different perspectives tell more about the context than about Wittgenstein himself. About this mystic interest in Wittgenstein some things can be said with special focus on Biographieforschung and the Kulturwissenschaften: The focus on biography from the very beginning in Wittgenstein research seems to have connected the interests of different disciplines; supported also by Wittgenstein's own interdisciplinary philosophical writing. Further it's less his realizations than his method-oriented thinking, which is independent from times and disciplines and therefore grants always new perceptions
