Bedeutungserlebnis and Lebensgefühl in Kant and Wittgenstein: Responsibility and the Future.

Christian Helmut Wenzel


This essay is about the inner and the outer in Wittgenstein, in particular his notion
of “meaning experience”. Wittgenstein reminds us that we should not think of the
inner psychological side the way we think about the outer, physical world. Again and
again he keeps returning to certain views about the soul and our mental states. This
makes me think that it is not only therapy he has in mind. I will contrast certain
aesthetic and ethical aspects of his thoughts with views from Kant.
