Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein
Birth: Apr. 26, 1889
Vienna (Wien), Austria
Death: Apr. 29, 1951
Cambridgeshire, England

One of the most original philosophers of the last century. His most noted texts are the 'Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus' and the later'Philosophical Investigations', which more or less entirely refutes the earlier work. But in his own words, 'What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence'. (Final sentence of the 'Tractatus'). (bio by: David Conway)
