Is this category encyclopedic?[edit]

What does it mean to be a Wittgensteinian philosopher? Will there be any agreement among philosophers about the application of the criterion? Some possible criteria:

  1. A philosopher whose work has dealt with Wittgenstein's work in depth;
  2. A philosopher whose work has been conducted in accordance with Wittgensteinian precepts;
  3. A philosopher who made their name in the years following Wittgenstein's death, was British, and rebelled against analytic philosophy.

I think criterion #1 is the most objective, criterion #2 is what the category is meant to be, and criterion #3 comes closest to what the category is. Criterion #2 is hopelessly subjective, and so unencyclopedic. — Charles Stewart (talk) 08:28, 22 April 2009 (UTC)
