  • In de nalatenschap van Ludwig Wittgenstein 1889 1951 vond men een bundel opmerkingen over de kleuren Met vele voorbeelden verheldert Over kleur de logica van onze kleurbegrippen Niets lijkt zo vanzelfsprekend als kleur, maar Wittgenstein toont vooral de begrensdheid van de taal waarmee wij over dit fenomeen spreken.
    Ludwig Wittgenstein Paul Wijdeveld
    Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein 26 April 1889 29 April 1951 was an Austrian British philosopher who worked primarily in logic, the philosophy of mathematics, the philosophy of mind, and the philosophy of language.Described by Bertrand Russell as the most perfect example I have ever known of genius as traditionally conceived, passionate, profound, intense, and dominating , he helped inspire two of the twentieth century s principal philosophical movements the Vienna Circle and Oxford ordinary language philosophy According to an end of the century poll, professional philosophers in Canada and the U.S rank both his Tractatus Logico Philosophicus and Philosophical Investigations among the top five most important books in twentieth century philosophy, the latter standing out as e one crossover masterpiece in twentieth century philosophy, appealing across diverse specializations and philosophical orientations Wittgenstein s influence has been felt in nearly every field of the humanities and social sciences, yet there are widely diverging interpretations of his thought.


    "Una debole luce bianca non è una luce grigia"Wittgenstein mi ha spiegato cosa penso e cosa dico di vedere quando vedo - quando vedo colori, per l'esattezza -. Poi cosa non penso e non dico. E infine ciò che non vedo.

    Clay Mosman
    There are two quotations in this book that summarize its content really well: (1) "We do not want to find a theory of color (neither a physiological nor a psychological one), but rather the logic of color concepts. And this accomplishes what people have unjustly expected from a theory." (2) "That which I am writing about so tediously, may be obvious to someone whose mind is less decrepit." Wittgenstein not only reflects on difficulties in our perception of color concepts (like imagining a grey f [...]

    "Can you lend me the Theory of Colours for a few weeks? It is an important work. His last things are insipid." --Ludwig van Beethoven, Conversation-book"2. In a picture in which a piece of white paper gets its lightness from the blue sky, the sky is lighter than the white paper. And yet in another sense blue is the darker and white the lighter colour. (Goethe). On the palette white is the lightest colour." --Ludwig Wittgenstein, Remarks on Colour"125. There is no experimentum crucis for Goethe' [...]

    One of the most amazing things I have ever read.

    some thoughts I had:“The description of the phenomena of colour-blindness is part of psychology: and therefore the description of the phenomena of normal vision, too? Psychology only describes the deviations of colour-blindness from normal vision.” This is another in a long line of critiques W. offers throughout his body of writing of the assumption that Psychology can properly deal with certain issues some presume it can deal with. The basis of all of these critiques is really, it seems to [...]

    "suppose someone were to suggest that a traffic light be brown." "There is gold paint, but Rembrandt didn't use it to paint a golden helmet." "Why don't we include black and white in the color circle? Only because we have a feeling that it's wrong?"quite a little treasure. i'm happy i read this.

    alternately comic and tragic, mostly tragic. there is a pathos in the desperation that drives so much of this writing that makes it tedious and hard to read, but this struggle is valuable to me

    I feel ridiculous deliberating over how many stars to confer upon Wittgenstein. Or upon (some of) the last published musings of Wittgenstein. Or upon a book written by a person. Do the star-blind have the same concept of star-blindness that the color-blind have about color-blindness? I am not interacting with stars, or color, or books, or people, or Wittgenstein. But I haven't invented them either. How impressive I would be had I done so.

    Wittgenstein says, "We do not want to find a theory of colorbut rather the logic of color concepts" (§188). An example of Wittgenstein's investigation of the logic of color concepts is his discussion of the relation between the concept of transparency and the concept of whiteness. While there can be transparent green glass, or red glass, there can't be transparent white glass. Whereas transparent green glass makes almost everything behind it look green (black objects continue looking black), in [...]

    Reading his "On Certainty" may help to understand what Wittgenstein is doing in this book. It is again his questioning of our normalised world, which is sustained/disguised by the tradition of education and science through the practice of language. He does so with the problem of colour this time. In the case of "On Certainty", his self-contained philosophical inquery seems appropriate because of the subject matter. But I do think that method works well for "Remarks on Colour". Our conceptions of [...]

    When compared to other books by Wittgenstein, this one wasn't one that I particularly enjoyed as much as "on certainty" or the blue and brown books. My take on perception of colour and generally the world is what i would call/consider myself, being a naive realist. Not a bad book, just not one I'll come back to often. (May 26, 2016)Edit: I reread this book this year and it really does grow on you. Benefits if you read the philosophical investigations and Zettel. (September 7, 2017)

    Okay so this was great?"Joyous" and "unexpectedly humorous" are not things I was expecting so have to say about what is essentially a book about language, colour and the way that we perceive the world around us, and yet they're genuinely the first two that spring immediately to mind. This was just fun?

    Even after weeks of reflection and writing a paper on it, I'm not sure I understand why Wittgenstein wants green to be a primary colour. This was not the hardest thing Wittgenstein wrote to read, but it was still a bit of a slog at times. I feel like I'm a better person now that I've done it. Colour is an interesting thing.

    imagine someone pointing to a place in the iris of a rembrandt eye and saying: "the walls in my room should be painted this colour". (9)ludwig wittgenstein. remarks on colour. ed. g.e.m. anscombe. trans. linda l. mcalister and margarete schättle. oxford: blackwell publishing, 1977.

    I read this with some interest, having done a paper on color theory for a science class freshman year in high school. This was read for an independent study conducted by Father William Ellos at Loyola University Chicago years later.

    This is Wittgenstein's collection of questions, statements, and observations on color. This is a must-read for visual artists and colorists in every field. Although the format is a bit tedious at first, you get into a rhythm and fall into a read-ponder-read cadence that this book requires.


    III-295: "That which I am writing about so tediously, may be obvious to someone whose mind is less decrepit."

    Sara Leone
    Along with Hans H. - biggest influence on my painting.

    "295. That which I am writing about so tediously, may be obvious to someone whose mind is less decrepit."

    A must for any colorist

    Best introduction to Wittgenstein since it discusses the logic of colour terms and not the psychology of colour perception.

    "d not every deviation from the norm must be a blindness, a defect."

    Philosophy such as this, seems like a waste of space.

    A tad befuddling. Okay, mind-tormentingly complicated. But hey, he's a linguist. Pretty impressive efforts for a posthumous work. Definitely an essential work on color.

    Ha! — "Imagine someone pointing to a place in the iris of a Rembrandt eye and saying: 'The walls in my room should be painted this color.'"

    Michael Mingo
    The fragmentary nature of Remarks on Colour makes it a frustrating read; there are some paragraphs that Wittgenstein repeats almost verbatim 3 or 4 times throughout the text. And towards the end, the use of leading questions ("Isn't it the case that?") becomes rather grating, like I'm being hurried along to a hazy conclusion. But, on the plus side, Wittgenstein proposes a number of thought-experiments which are great fun to puzzle through, and those quick insights make the book a worthwhile read [...]

    This was a fantastic read. The way in which the philosophical points are divided makes each one like a little mind-blowing poem. This book is a must for artists and anyone interested in seeing the world differently. I can't ever look at the color blue or grey the same ever again
