Lost in the City: Lessons in Co-ordination
Keywords:Ludwig Wittgenstein, philosophy of technology, philosophy of multilingualism, philosophy of language, illiteracy
This short essay offers a Wittgensteinian reflection on the problem of knowing and learning one's way about in language, in the city, in technology. What a philosophy of the city, the philosophy of technology, and the philosophy of multilingualism have in common is that they might fruitfully start from a position of illiteracy. The paper makes some programmatic suggestions on how to assume this position.
