Stephen Law spiega su Aeon come le ultime opere di Ludwig Wittgenstein permettano di elaborare una difesa della fede religiosa.
In Lectures, Wittgenstein said that, as a non-believer, he couldn’t contradict what the religious person believes:
If you ask me whether or not I believe in a Judgment Day, in the sense in which religious people have belief in it, I wouldn’t say: ‘No. I don’t believe there will be such a thing.’ It would seem to me utterly crazy to say this.
And then I give the explanation: ‘I don’t believe in …’, but then the religious person never believes what I describe.
I can’t say. I can’t contradict that person.
