The Possibility of Reddish Green: Wittgenstein outside Philosophy (Terra Nova Press) Paperback – Illustrated, June 23, 2020
Enhance your purchase
The expression of his eyes remained the same, a cold, piercing sadness. Yet his final words were "Tell them I had a happy life." This poetic book examines the way Ludwig Wittgenstein has influenced artists of the word beyond his own field, thereby touching the subject of how philosophy can be relevant at large. By studying the ways Wittgenstein's theories have been bent, transformed, and expanded, David Rothenberg shows that responses to the reading of philosophy can take many deep, reflective, and different forms. Aphoristically constructed in the style of E. M. Cioran or Edmond Jabès, carefully illustrated with paintings and drawings by Doug Hall, Leif Haglund, and Debra Pughe, The Possibility of Reddish Green situates Wittgenstein in the age of the sound bite and the artistic fragment, promoting the aesthetic of detachment and yet seeking to find a route through the sea of disconnected, jumbled ideas and changes that mark our time.

This is a book for anyone interested in Wittgenstein, anyone interested in the intersections between philosophy and art, and anyone interested in the "spaces in between" what we can say in words. Beautiful, searching, and slyly funny. Five stars.
