Wittgenstein Source Bergen Nachlass Edition (BNE)


(2015-) Wittgenstein Source Bergen Nachlass Edition. Edited by the Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen under the direction of Alois Pichler. In: Wittgenstein Source (2009-). (N) 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 2015-16, 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 entry that addresses its text genesis and philosophical relevance (authored by Joachim Schulte), and an archival and style note (co-authored by Jonathan Smith for the Wren Library items, Alfred Schmidt for the Austrian National Library items, Bridget Whittle for the Bertrand Russell Archives items, and Alois Pichler in cooperation with Brian McGuinness and Joachim Schulte).

Please note that it has not yet been possible to replace all of the images made available earlier with the recent higher quality images; this concerns for example the images of Ts-212.

Please pay special attention to the fact that the items held at the Wren Library at Trinity College Cambridge (WL) - and only these items - are since February 19, 2017, made available under the Creative Commons license Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0).
