Wittgenstein's Fideism: Belief, Reason and Practice

Vibha Chaturvedi (Author)
Synopsis This book attempts to give a detailed and critical account of Wittgenstein's views on religious belief and discourse. Its focus is on later writings of Wittgenstein. A systematic account of his perspective on religious belief is not available in these writings. It has, therefore, to be constructed on the basis of brief, cryptic and scattered remarks in his notebooks and some of the writings and the class-notes taken by his students. This book presents a clear, systematic and lucid account of a difficult thinker that Wittgenstein is and in an area not often addressed in scholarly writings on Wittgenstein. It relates his account to the contemporary debates on the nature of religious discourse and rationality of religious belief. The book would be useful for students and research scholars of philosophy and also for general readers.
