The planned new edition will help to better understand the cultural dimension in Wittgensteins writings and the philosophical significance of his correspondence. At the same time, the edition will be a pilot project in linking WAB's Bergen Electronic Edition (BEE) of Wittgensteins philosophical papers to the Brenner Archives electronic edition of Wittgensteins Gesamtbriefwechsel/Complete Correspondence (ICE). It thus will add value to the achievements of each of these large-scale projects both from the scholarly point of view and as products on the market. Moreover, the project will intensify the co-operation between WAB and FIBA in philological matters bearing upon Wittgenstein by preparing the empirical basis for new investigations into cultural history as well as into Wittgensteins philosophy of culture. Finally, although the project's starting point and centre is the text of Culture and Value, it will supplement the research base for understanding Wittgenstein's philosophy of culture by extending its scope to other texts in the Wittgenstein Nachlass pertaining to Wittgenstein's philosophy of culture, and to all relevant texts in Wittgenstein's work as a whole, including his complete correspondence.
