WITTGENSTEIN’S IDEALISM: FROM KANT THROUGH HEGEL
Agency – Hegel – Idealism – Language – Normativity – Reason – Wittgenstein.
The following contribution aims at presenting a reading of Wittgenstein’s later
philosophy as a kind of idealism within the Kantian and post-Kantian tradition. The goal is to argue
that Wittgenstein’s position shares substantial theoretical and methodological grounds with Hegel’s
idealism. The main concepts pertaining to the later Wittgenstein’s position are analyzed and
understood as a form of idealism. After defending the reading against anti-idealist interpretations
we argue that the kind of idealism presented clashes with central tenets of the Kantian position.
These points of departure are then shown to cover in substantial manner the same kind of criticism
Hegel raised against Kant. In the last section, an interpretation of central concepts of the Hegelian position is offered in order to dissolve any fundamental incompatibility with Wittgenstein’s idealism
