CONF – Festschrift Symposium for Hans-Johann Glock – Wittgenstein and Beyond: Language, Mind, and Normativity (Zurich)
16 September 2021–18 September 2021
From Prof. Dr. Eva Schmidt:
Festschrift Symposium for Hans-Johann Glock – Wittgenstein and Beyond: Language, Mind, and Normativity
University of Zurich, September 16 – 18, 2021
The symposium celebrates the work of Hans-Johann Glock, a philosopher renowned for both his exegesis of Wittgenstein and his many contributions to systematic debates. The rare combination of a Wittgenstein-inspired approach with a preparedness to break away from Wittgenstein to tackle problems in an open-minded way makes Glock a distinctive voice in contemporary philosophy. His work has inspired both Wittgenstein scholars and philosophers who are not primarily interested in Wittgenstein’s legacy. The purpose of the three-day symposium is to bring together both up-and-coming and distinguished philosophers from Switzerland and abroad to discuss the potential of applying Wittgensteinian insights to contemporary debates. It covers a wide range of topics, including specific issues in the philosophy of language and mind, the theory of agency and normativity, as well as metaphilosophical issues.
