A snapshot of Wittgenstein’s stay in Dublin from November 1948 to June 1949 by Conor McCabe. Wittgenstein stayed at the Ross Hotel (now the Aisling Hotel), and spent time thinking at the Botanic Gardens.

McCabe retraces Wittgenstein’s steps from the Botanic Gardens to the Aisling Hotel, and is given to ruminations on aesthetics and mysticism inspired by the Tractatus. Follow his journey here.

This plaque at the Aisling memorialises Wittgenstein’s stay:
