A sortable table of Wittgenstein's lectures, and publications thereof

by Alois Pichler, Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen (also see "A sortable table of Wittgenstein's Nachlass").

The following table can be sorted according to
  • Lecture course / lecture / talk (CMSC = Cambridge Moral Sciences Club)
  • Title of the course / lecture / talk
  • Date of the course / lecture / talk
  • Source for publication
  • Publication
  • Publication in German
Most of the data below is derived from J. Klagge's "The Wittgenstein Lectures" in Ludwig Wittgenstein: Public and Private Occasions (Klagge & Nordman 2003), pp. 331-367, where more details can be found. Naturally, another indispensible source of information are the lecture course editions themselves.

For editors and bibliographic details see the bibliography in Pichler, Biggs & Uffelmann 2011 (updated 2019).
