Wittgenstein Source Bergen Nachlass Edition (BNE)


(2015-) Wittgenstein, Ludwig: Bergen Nachlass Edition. Edited by the Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen under the direction of Alois Pichler. In: Wittgenstein Source (2009-). Bergen: WAB.


With the Wittgenstein Source Bergen Nachlass Edition (BNE), the Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen (WAB) wants to give access to Wittgenstein's Nachlass in facsimiles (JPG) and text editions (XML/HTML; normalized and diplomatic versions). In the course of 2015-17, the facsimile edition shall be completed to include the entire Nachlass. In the course of 2016-17, the current text editions shall be replaced as well as extended (in the meantime, use the Nachlass IDP site in order to access the newest versions of the transcriptions). Moreover, each Nachlass item shall be equipped with an archival note and an entry that addresses the item's text genesis and philosophical relevance.
