Get Begegnungen mit Wittgenstein: Ludwig Hänsels Tagebücher PDF

By Ilse Somavilla

Ludwig Hänsel zählte zu den wenigen Freunden Ludwig Wittgensteins, denen dieser bis zu seinem Tode verbunden blieb. Seit der Zeit der gemeinsamen Kriegsgefangenschaft bei Monte Cassino pflegten die beiden Männer einen intensiven geistigen Austausch, den Hänsel in seinen Tagebüchern detailliert festgehalten hat. Die leidenschaftlichen Gespräche über religiöse und philosophische Probleme - u.a. über das Manuskript des Tractatus logico-philosophicus - machen trotz oft heftiger Dispute Hänsels Bedeutung als mitfühlender Freund und Berater deutlich, auf dessen Meinung Wittgenstein Wert legte. Darüber hinaus stellt die lebhafte Beschreibung der Gefangenschaft und der Jahre danach ein wertvolles Dokument europäischer Zeit- und Kulturgeschichte dar.
