Explores Wittgenstein's contribution to continental philosophical debates about the 'death of man' and constructs and defends a positive Wittgensteinian account of human being. Moving beyond Wittgenstein's much heralded responsibility for the 'death of man' debate begun in the course of the previous century, "Subjectivity after Wittgenstein" constructs a positive Wittgensteinian account of subjectivity and human nature. Drawing on his later writings, this book ranges across Wittgenstein's writings on philosophy of psychology and religion to articulate his notion of the post-Cartesian subject. In addition, this book answers the oft-repeated arguments that the anti-Cartesian turn in continental thought on the subject has lead to a loss of a centre for both ethics and politics. By further exploring the implications of the Wittgensteinian account, "Subjectivity after Wittgenstein" makes clear that a non-Cartesian view on human being is not necessarily ethically and politically inert. It moreover argues that ethical and political arguments should not automatically take precedence in a debate about the nature of man. "Continuum Studies in British Philosophy" presents cutting-edge scholarship in the history of British philosophy. The wholly original arguments, perspectives and research findings in titles in this series make it an important and stimulating resource for students and academics from across the field.
