This Wittgenstein Reading Group meets about one a month in Oxford UK, usually at St Hilda's College.

Meetings are from 5pm-7pm on varying days of the week. Dates are chosen on a month by month basis.

They consist of discussion of about 20 pages of text which members have read beforehand.

Members include fellows, current graduate students, and other interested parties who have studied philosophy.

The current convenor is Richard Gipps. Please contact him at to ask about opportunities/requirements for joining.

The next book we shall read is Philosophical Investigations.

A philosopher who is not taking part in discussions is like a boxer who never goes into the ring. (Drury, quoting Wittgenstein, 1930; the analogy perhaps has its limitations...)
