Performing Ethos: International Journal of Ethics in Theatre and Performance

'Acting Out – Trauma and the Ethics of Remembrance',

Volume 3, Issue 2 (November/December 2012)

Writing in 1922, Wittgenstein concluded his text Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus with the statement: 'Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent.' (Wittgenstein [1922] 1995). Drawing attention to the limits of language, Wittgenstein's dictum asks us not to speak of that which language fails to take account of.
