The Bergen Electronic Edition of Wittgenstein's Nachlass

Claus Huitfeldt


Wittgenstein’s Nachlass: The Bergen Electronic Edition was recently published at Oxford University Press, the result of ten years of work at the Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen. This electronic edition is the first publication ever of the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein’s (1889-1951) complete philosophical Nachlass. It contains more than 20,000 fully searchable pages of transcription, as well as a complete colour facsimile. The contents and the share scale of the edition, as well as the innovative editorial methods employed, make it important not only to Wittgenstein scholarship, but also to the development of editorial principles for electronic text-critical editions in general.
