I heard it with my own ears. These two examples are used to show that one can find moral decadence whereever one chooses to look. I have been in taxis recently, where I was embarassed by the lyrics of some of the songs. Fry-chicken Woman was, I believe, one of them.
Ludwig Wittgenstein A year before, at Trinity, Cambridge, Wittgenstein had been involved in a row with Karl Popper, and had reputedly threatened him with a poker. On this evening, too, Wittgenstein's behavior le[d] to a row, with an elderly philosophy don.

No poker was flourished. But the don dropped dead a few days later. The outcome is expressed in the words of Karl Kraus: Selected Essays [Basic Books,p.
Protagoras ] Awful fellow. Wittgenstein's own philosophy is senseless, and it is admitted to be so. I am, therefore, of the opinion that the problems have in essentials been finally solved. I am not sure that he was even a good philosopher, and one of the principal effects of his influence has been the largely sterile shambles to which 20th Century philosophy was reduced.
This effect was not unlike what he actually wanted, since there was for him in fact little for philosophy to do except to undo the damage that philosophy had done by existing in the first place.
That a philosopher who grounds his entire thought on truths about language should actually know so little about languagewhile denying that there are truths external to particular languages at all, is at least ironic.
That the result is both incoherent and nihilistic, as well as ignorant, is a disturbing reflection on the adulation accorded to the whole business by professional philosophers. But that is just the point. In Twentieth Century philosophy, the pointless and the empty are regarded as the pinnacle of wisdom.
When obscure, hermetic verbiage becomes a means of political rent seekingwithout the slightest attempt to address the issues of being and value that draw the young or the sincere and curious to philosophy, but with a message of detachment and unconcern for everything or of trendy devotion to causes that are logically unrelated to any content of philosophyit is not surprising that its cultivation flourishes, or that Ludwig Wittgenstein should be regarded as a great philosopher.
Wittgenstein crossed paths with the Friesian School in two minor but noteworthy ways. He was actually a relative of Friedrich A. They happened to meet on a train station platform while both were serving in the Austrian Army in World War I.
They did not know each other but seemed so familiar that they assumed they must be related. They were, in fact, second cousins once removed Wittgenstein's maternal grandmother was the sister of Hayek's maternal great-grandfatherwith Hayek exactly ten years younger in age.
Wittgenstein's eldest sister Hermine was the contemporary and friend, as well as second cousin like Ludwigof Hayek's mother. The Wittgenstein family was wealthy, and there is a handsome painting of Wittgenstein's sister Margaret Stonborough-Wittgenstein by Gustav Klimt [shown; note ].
Hayek did not have very much to do with them at the height of their fortunes, but after the war he heard about Ludwig occasionally through his mother, until he began encountering him at Cambridge. Wittgenstein himself gave up his share of the family inheritance, since he was not very interested in money and preferred to live simply.
There was not, of course, much in the way of a philosophical connection between Wittgenstein and Hayek -- only in their very last conversation, indid they begin to find some common political ground after Wittgenstein was shaken and disillusioned by the behavior of the Russians occupying Vienna.
There was not much of a philosophical connection either, between Wittgenstein and Karl Popperbut there was a famous and characteristic encounter between them, when Popper was invited to give a talk at the Cambridge "Moral Sciences Club" in as recounted in his Unended Quest, An Intellectual Autobiography, Open Court,pp.
The talk rapidly turned into an argument between the two, with Wittgenstein making his characteristic claim that there are no philosophical problems, just confusions about language. Any number of problems that Popper cited were rejected, and finally, when Popper turned to questions of moral justification, Wittgenstein asked for an example of a moral rule.
Since Wittgenstein had happened to pick up a poker from the fireplace and was waving it around while making his points was this, as analytic philosophers like to say, "hand waving"? The historian Paul Johnson, who saw Wittgenstein at Oxford inis still, even now, under the impresson that Wittgenstein actually was threatening Popper with the poker.
But I think that Popper was simply making a bit of a joke, which Wittgenstein, obviously, was in no mood to countenance. After Popper finished his talk, R. Braithwaite approached him, with apologies, or perhaps congratulations, that Popper was "the only man who managed to interrupt Wittgenstein in the way in which Wittgenstein interrupted everyone else.
His concerned impression was that the furious, indignant, and "rampant" philosopher was not quite sane. Hayek's description has led some to infer that he was at Popper's talk, but he wasn't. Wittgenstein's behavior seems to have been quite customary, and one of his students also later said that slamming the door didn't necessarily mean he was even angry.
He just slammed doors all the time. This example is revealing of a significant feature of Wittgenstein's life: It displays few of the customary features, in this case civilities in general publicationsthat now are considered necessary and proper for an academic career.
