First published Fri Nov 8, 2002; substantive revision Mon Mar 3, 2014 Considered by some to be the greatest philosopher of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein played a central, if controversial, role in 20th-century analytic philosophy.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

He continues to influence current philosophical thought in topics as diverse as logic and language, perception and intention, ethics and religion, aesthetics and culture. Originally, there were two commonly recognized stages of Wittgenstein's thought—the early and the later—both of which were taken to be pivotal in their respective periods. In more recent scholarship, this division has been questioned: some interpreters have claimed a unity between all stages of his thought, while others talk of a more nuanced division, adding stages such as the middle Wittgenstein and the third Wittgenstein. Still, it is commonly acknowledged that the early Wittgenstein is epitomized in his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. 1. 2. 2.1 Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus.

Paul Virilio

He is best known for his writings about technology as it has developed in relation to speed and power, with diverse references to architecture, the arts, the city and the military. Biography[edit] Since 1998, Virilio is only teaching intensive seminars at European Graduate School.[1] His latest projects involve working with homeless groups in Paris and building the first Museum of the Accident.

Theoretical arguments[edit] The war model[edit] Virilio's predictions about 'logistics of perception' - the use of images and information in war - (in War and Cinema, 1984) were so accurate that during the Gulf War he was invited to discuss his ideas with French military officers. The integral accident[edit] Virilio believes that technology cannot exist without the potential for accidents. Dromology[edit] ‘Dromos’ is the Greek noun for road, but Virilio takes it to mean the activity of race (Virilio 1977:47).
