The Vienna School for Truth Exploration

Abstract

The [fantasy] Vienna School for Truth Exploration was founded by Ludwig Wittgenstein in 1918 [the Tractatus"s Preface date]. Its aim: Prepare students for exploring the world and its reality. Its textbook: The famous Tractatus. Its motto: "Argue or Agree!" The School has a peculiar aura of back-to-the-future, since its students have already been to a mid-nineteen forties Ludwig Wittgenstein"s lectures at Cambridge. It may get confusing, as these "two" philosophers happen to have exactly the same name. The students" names are Greek letters, Alpha, Beta, Gamma, etc. [In this paper, all the characters, including Wittgenstein, are fictitious. Sometimes they are the Tractatus Wittgenstein, sometimes they are the Investigations one, and often they are I]
