This lecture by South African writer, playwright and academic Jane Taylor considers Ludwig Wittgenstein's paper, "On Certainty" in which the philosopher engages with the taken-for-granted in everyday thought. Taylor notes, "In our contemporary context of the precarious, on one hand, and the political vehemence of conviction, on the other, it seems timely to pay attention to the faltering and tentative mode of regard and thought of one of the twentieth century's most enigmatic thinkers." Recorded on 11/21/2019. (#35149)
