The Big Lebowski
Wittgensteinian language puzzle?
Very interesting (and convincing) article linking the Cohen brother’s movie to Wittgenstein’s notion of a language puzzle. There are already strong/obvious connections to Taoist philosophy in the Big Lebowski, so once again I am even more impressed by the Cohen brother’s work.
So, in our digital, mass-communication and social-media age, is it “…too easy to slip into playing these empty language games at the cost of actual meaningful communication, and that causes a huge amount of confusion that drives the various plots of life forward, as it were.”?
