HyperWittgenstein (2004-16)

HyperWittgenstein started as a project to provide open access to a substantial and important part of Wittgenstein's Nachlass, with the objective to build a virtual scholarly community for collaborative Wittgenstein research and learning on the Internet. The project was carried out in cooperation with the Groupement de Recherche Européen plus "Hyper-Learning" (GDRE+ Hyper-Learning) and in the frames of the European COST action A32 "Open Scholarly Communities on the Web" (COST Action A32) and the European eContent+ project "Digital Semantic Corpora for Virtual Research in Philosophy" project (DISCOVERY). HyperWittgenstein led up to Wittgenstein Source (WS).

The parts of the Wittgenstein Nachlass originally included in HyperWittgenstein and Wittgenstein Source comprised in total approximately 5000 pages and were composed of selections from the Notes on Logic complex: TS 201a1, TS 201a2 (1913-14); the Lecture on Ethics complex: MS 139a, TS 207 (1929); the Big Typescript complex: MS 114, MS 115(first part), MS 153a, MS 153b, MS 154, MS 155, MS 156a, MS 148, MS 149, MS 150, TS 212, TS 213 (1931-34); the Brown Book complex: MS 115(second part), MS 140(p. 39v), MS 141, MS 152, TS 310 (1934-36).

Today, since May 27, 2016, WAB offers on its Interactive dynamic presentation site free and immediate online access to work in progress editions of all of its Nachlass transcriptions. The site functions at the same time as a laboratory for experimenting with new editorial tools and methods, for example dynamic and interactive dynamic presentation of primary sources on the basis of online XML text archives.
