Semantic faceted search and browsing of the Wittgenstein Nachlass (2012-)

In cooperation with the University of Bergen Library Section for Digital Services (Hemed Al Ruwehy and Øyvind Liland Gjesdal)

With the site linked from below, WAB offers semantic faceted search and browsing of selected metadata from its transcriptions and records of the Wittgenstein Nachlass, as well as metadata contributed by partners. A precursor of this site was built in cooperation with the University of Ancona (Christian Morbidoni, Semedia project) within the framework of the DM2E project. The site bases on WAB's ongoing work towards a comprehensive ontology for the Wittgenstein domain. For the overall conception of the ontology WAB has received support from Christian Morbidoni and the European projects Discovery, Agora and DM2E as well as James M. Fielding (Univ. of Paris I) and Amélie Zöllner-Weber (author of "Figurenontologie"). Authors at WAB include Alois Pichler, Christian Erbacher, Rune Jensen Falch, Heinz Wilhelm Krüger and Deirdre Smith. For entering the metadata, WAB has received substantial help from Emilia Ciesnik, Agnieszka Dura and Anna Sobko (all three trainees in the University of Torun POWER program).

Provencance of metadata:
  • Metadata for Nachlass ("Bemerkung"): Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen (WAB) 1990-, with contributions by Alois Pichler (Published in); Hans Biesenbach (Refers to work); Mark Addis (Univ. of Aarhus and Birmingham City University), Steen Brock (Univ. of Aarhus), James Klagge (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University), Alois Pichler (Discusses).
  • Metadata for Sraffa diary entries: Moira De Iaco (University of Salento), on the basis of the digital copies of Sraffa's diaries released by Trinity College Library, Cambridge, on the SRAFFA site.
Note that some branches, including Discusses and Has other version, are currently disabled from browsing due to work in progress.
