Source Notes

Felipe Ferreira quotes B. McGuiness, "Wittgenstein, A Life," Penguin Books. In April 2006 David Hamblin wrote to PT: Mike Harding tells me that another biography, "Wittgenstein, the Duty of Genius" by Ray Monk, gives a time of 18.00, and he says that Monk had a letter from Wittgenstein himself quoting this time." PT advises using either of these entries with some caution. Vienna went from LMT to CET in April 1893, a few years after he was born. It is entirely possible that he wrote the time in retrospect and we cannot know whether he had himself converted the time from LMT to CET when he gave out the information in the cited letter.
