BETWEEN ETHICS AND AESTHETICS. AGAINST THE MYTH OF REDUCTIVE THERAPEUTISM

ALICE MORELLI

Abstract


My paper is about Andronico’s work on the connection between Ethics and Aesthetics in Wittgenstein’s later philosophy. In particular, I will focus on the role that her ideas play against the therapeutic reading of Wittgenstein’s philosophy. I will argue that, contrary to such a reading, the ethical tone of Wittgenstein’s philosophy should be understood as a consequence of aesthetical e-ducation, that is, the sharpening of the eye in order to see differently. I will show that (1) philosophy is a specific kind of theory and that (2) Cavell’s notion of the rediscovery of the ordinary does not properly grasp the ethical force of Wittgenstein’s remarks.
