Abstrakt

Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein was a British-Austrian philosopher, widely considered one of most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. His early work played a significant role in twentieth-century logical positivism while his later work has been a main methodological influence in the works of key social theorists such as Pierre Bourdieu, Jürgen Habermas, and Anthony Giddens. The entry briefly describes Wittgenstein's philosophy and summarizes his overall influence within social theory.
