ALBUQUERQUE, Elaine Deccache Porto e  and  SOUZA, Solange Jobim e. Wittgenstein and Walter Benjamin: ethical and philosophical considerations as ways of living and thinking. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2008, vol.20, n.1, pp. 113-133. ISSN 0103-5665.

The article analyses the philosophy of language and ethics in Wittgenstein and Walter Benjamin, and its goal is to make consistent the theoretical conceptions that approach each other emphasizing, however, the specificity inherent to the course of thought of each one of them and their clear differences. The understanding that both offer about the possibilities of expanding the limits of language as a fundamental philosophical matter is highlighted, pointing out the consequences of this effort in the ways of living and thinking.

Keywords : Wittgenstein; Walter Benjamin; ethics; language; knowledge.
