|Abstrakt EN:||Waismann is said to have learnt much from Wittgenstein. After their break-up in Cambridge, he moved to Oxford where he developed his own philosophy, which however remains strongly influenced by Wittgenstein. The aim of this talk is to reconsider the process of Waismann`s emancipation from Wittgenstein. The main thesis that will be defended is that in his late work Waismann continued to develop and apply the method of philosophizing which was invented in the course of the collaboration between him, Schlick and Wittgenstein, and which they called “unsere Methode”. After Schlick's assassination and Wittgenstein's having been “led astray”, Waismann remained the only one who was able to utilize this innovative method seriously.|
