The Duality of Wittgenstein's Phenomenological Actuality

Elisabeth Rigal


The question for me today is whether something like a Wittgensteinian phenomenology exists or not. The way in which I'll try to answer this is to show that the works of Wittgenstein do indeed bear evidence of phenomenological questionning. Now, one must acknowledge that there are in fact two paradigms of what is termed "phenomenology". The first task then is to determine the difference between them. However, as the two paradigms will appear irreducible to one another, we'll have to face a new question – and this one is very arduous: how are we to state the consistency of Wittgenstein's thought through its own evolution?
