ABSTRACT. Wittgenstein wrote: ‘Working in philosophy … is really more a working on oneself. On one’s own interpretation. On one’s own way of seeing things.’ In what sense, for Wittgenstein, is work in philosophy ‘work on oneself’? This paper will be devoted to answering this question, and to delineating the moral aspects of this work.
