Call for Papers (Deadline February 1, 2017)
WORKSHOP “WITTGENSTEIN AND PHILOSOPHY OF TECHNOLOGY”
DATE 13 March 2017
VENUE TBA, Vienna, Austria
Few philosophers of technology enlist Wittgenstein’s work when thinking about technology, and scholars of Wittgenstein pay scant attention to remarks about technology in his work. This double neglect of (aspects of) Wittgenstein’s work is symptomatic of a more general gap between philosophy of language and philosophy of technology. This workshop aims to close these gaps with presentations and discussions that use Wittgenstein to conceptually develop existing investigations in philosophy of technology and/or to better understand and evaluate technologies in the 21st century.
