Ludwig Wittgenstein is reported to have said about William James: “That is what makes him a good philosopher; he was a real human being”. I believe that Wittgenstein was right about James. However, I also think that Wittgenstein’s contention is true of philosophy in general. My lecture is about this general claim.
About the speaker:

He is Professor of Philosophy, the founder and director of the William James Center and co-director of the Human Rights Center at the University of Potsdam (Germany).
