University of Bergen Magazine 2002 - Wittgenstein's posthumous manuscripts given EU status: "The University of Bergen's Wittgenstein Archive has recently been named a 'European Research Infrastructure', " which means money
The Archive recently received a positive response from the European Commission to its application for RI status. This is probably the first time that a humanities project has been awarded RI status. Over a period of two and a half years the EU will provide 165,433 Euros (about NOK 1.3 million) of support for research in the Archive. This will mean that about 30 visiting students of Wittgenstein will receive fellowships to visit the Wittgenstein Archive. Google Search: site:www.uib.no wittgenstein

What does it mean to say "I can't imagine red and blue in the same spot at the same time"?
It is misleading to use the word "can't" because it suggests a wrong analogy.
We should say, "it has no sense to say - - - "
The pianola may go wrong and we can't be sure it will not go wrong.
And there is nothing in the machine that can be right or wrong. The machine goes as it goes.
Grammar circumscribes language.
Grammar is not the expression of what is the case but of what is possible.
Is playing chess then an amorphous state like toothache?
Language may be compared to the controls of a machine.
The nimbus of philosophy has been lost.
For we now have a method of doing philosophy, and can speak of *skilful* philosphers.
What is philosophy?
What we are in fact doing is to tidy up our notions, to make clear what *can* be said about the world.
This act of clearing up is philosophy.
In philosophy we are not laying foundations but tidying up a room, in the process of which we have to touch everything a dozen times.
The only way to do philosophy is to do everything twice.
I am off from UK to DK to Copenhagen on Wednesday so I only have the book for a couple of days.
