Wittgenstein, Mind, and Meaning: Toward a Social Conception of Mind

Synopsis

Where Wittgenstein argues that there is no thought without language, advocates for cognitivism argue for the priority of thought over natural language usage.This collection of papers explores the connection between Wittgenstein's criticism of the Cartesian theory of mind and his conception of language and mind, and lays the foundations for a social conception of mind, a conception that emphasises the social basis of rule-following and the philosophical significance of language learning.
