Programme Heyting Day 2022

The Tractatus gives rise to many exciting issues of interpretation. The speakers of the Heyting Day will throw light on some of these issues, especially on Wittgenstein’s views on the nature of logic and on the role of the first person in the Tractatus. The day will provide ample room to reflect together about what the book has to tell us.
