Professor Potter will discuss Wittgenstein's concept of religion.

In his notebooks, both during the First World War and at Cambridge in the 1930s, Wittgenstein tried to offer a conception of religion as a way of expressing ethical value and not as an explanation for physical facts. Professor Potter shall discuss this conception and some of its difficulties.

This lecture is part of the University of Cambridge Alumni Festival 2013.
