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
