Young Wittgenstein


This photograph is featured in a recent NYT book review. Photos of Wittgenstein are few and far between so it was nice to see this one of the young Ludwig around 17 or 18 with the family. I also chanced upon the full version of Derek Jarman’s film which I couldn’t find on DVD. I recall that it was pretty accessible given the director’s “experimental” inclinations. A small screen, but given that it’s stagy, it doesn’t really detract from one’s enjoyment.
