Form and Formalism

Form and Formalism

If Wittgenstein asks us to do away with a unified linguistic formalism as a model of language, action, thinking, truth, or logic, to think about language use not as embedded within or descriptive of a form of life but as a form of life, where does that leave the description and articulation of linguistic form? The Form and Formalism working group explores the question of form and experiments with the translation of the problem of form from one domain, discipline, and practice to another with the hope that such an exercise contributes to practices of technical and conceptual collaboration between disciplines, especially at the level of methods and techniques. The group largely functions as a reading and discussion group, but also networks with other groups and departments to invite speakers, organise panels, etc.
