Ludwig Wittgenstein's so-called "Remarks on Colour" are frequently
described as extremely fragmented and exceptionally difficult to
understand, and their significance remains (on the whole) unclear.
Furthermore, compared with other aspects of Wittgenstein's philosophy,
his thoughts on colour have, to date, received little attention.
For this reason, the Philosophy Branch of the WU, the Department of
Philosophy of the University of Vienna and the Vienna Forum for Analytic
Philosophy will be hosting a conference that aims to substantially
advance our understanding of this material, which is without doubt among
the most opaque and perplexing of Wittgenstein's writings.
The organizers would like to invite everyone interested to attend the
conference and participate in the discussions.
