The First Bob Patterson Grant Part D
Tuesday, 18July2005
Ludwig Wittengenstein was one of the great minds
of modern logic and philosophy
The following pictures are taken from
Introduction to Wittgenstein by John Heaton and
Judy Groves
2
He started as a student of Bertrand Russell
3
He argued that

5
  • Facts
  • Are in logical space
  • Are independent of one another
  • Can only be stated or asserted

(No Transcript)
7
These pictures of facts are mirrored in language
to give us meaning, so we can truly say a
hippopotamus is not in the room
For this to be possible the world must consist of
simple objects fitting into one another like the
links on a chain to form states of affairs.
Reality is the existence or non-existence of
these states of affairs
8
Russell reported that He maintained, for
example, at one time that all existential
propositions are meaningless. This was in a
lecture room, and Russell invited him to consider
the proposition
Apparently Wittgenstein won this encounter
9
One of the goals of the trip was to learn more
about Fred Hoyle, the famous astronomer and
writer of science fiction
One of Hoyles books is about hiking in Ireland
on the Dingle Peninsula where Marcia and I spend
the last week of this trip.
10
So when a new biography of Hoyle appeared in
Heffers marked down, no less I had to get it.
11
Then I discovered that the author, Simon Minton,
was scheduled to talk to us. What a great
coincidence.
He turned out to be an unprepossessing chap with
less to say than I had hoped.
12
Ghost walk that included the haunted gate to
Peterhouse College
13
A haunted bookshop
14
And a haunted window that had to be walled up.
15
The Round Church on Round Church Street
16
The Wren Library in Trinity College
17
A first folio of Shakespeare
18
A first edition of Newtons Principia
19
and a first edition of Winnie The Pooh which was
not permitted to be photographed
20
On Thursday we walked .
21
to Grantchester Orchard where Rupert Brooke
held court G.E. Moore, Lytton Strachey, Maynard
Keynes, Roger Fry, and Leonard Fry, Virginia
Wolf, and Bertrand Russell went to relax
22
Brooke wrote "If I should die, think only this of
me
That there's some corner of a foreign field that
is forever England." (from 'The Soldier') then
went off to WW 1 and was killed.
23
That is where we heard about the second bombings
in London that werent really effective, but
frightened everyone and required a lot of calls
to the states.
