Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


This paper combines views of Wittgenstein and Heidegger into an account of mind/ action. It does this by suggesting that these two philosophers be viewed in part as descendants of Life-philosophy (Lebensphilosophie). Part I describes the conception of life that informs and emerges from these thinkers. Parts Two and Three detail particular aspects of this conception: Wittgenstein on the constitution of states of life and Heidegger on the flow-structure of the stream of life. The Conclusion offers reasons for believing their combined viewpoint.
