>In his recent book, Wittgenstein and Judaism, Ranjit Chatterjee argues that we
>read Wittgenstein's works autobiographically for how the writer reveals and
>conceals his own Judaism and his affinities with Jewish thought.  Potential
>papers might engage with different parts of this proposition.  How do
>Wittgenstein's attempts to conceal himself personally relate to his theories
>of language as a whole?  How might his approach to language relate to Jewish
>views of language?  How might these questions be further elucidated in
>connection with other writers who comment on Jewish understandings of
>language, such as Martin Buber, Jacques Derrida and Emmanuel Levinas?
