Ludwig Wittgenstein

a.k.a. Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein

Author Code: GLJW

Born: Apr. 26, 1889 - Vienna, Austria

Died: Apr. 29, 1951 - Cambridge, England

From a cultivated family which included Brahms among their friends, Wittgenstein studied mechanical engineering in Berlin and in 1908, went to Manchester, England to further his studies in aeronautics. Because of this engineering background, his interest in mathematics was naturally stimulated and he became interested in the philosophy surrounding the foundations of mathematics. He went to Cambridge to study under Bertrand Russell and with Russell's help, subsequently published Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1922), the only work of his published during his lifetime. He returned to Austria and took a position as a teacher, but returned to Cambridge in 1929 to teach philosophy at Trinity College. He became professor of philosophy in 1939, a position he held until 1947 when he retired to concentrate on his writing. The work that he produced during those years was published posthumously as Philosophical Investigations. His other primary work, also published after his death was On Certainty, written between 1949 and his death in 1951 of prostate cancer.
