British Wittgenstein Society: Conference on “the Third Wittgenstein”

The topic of the inaugural conference of the British Wittgenstein Society (held in 2008) was “the Third Wittgenstein” (the conference was organized by Danièle Moyal-Sharrock, editor of the essay collection, The Third Wittgenstein: The Post-Investigations Works). Information about that conference is available here. The journal Philosophia has recently published the proceedings from that conference, and I thought some of our readers would be interested in reading the papers.
