IMAGINING AN AFTER

October 02, 2018 | DigBoston

I was looking and looking for a quote that I thought was from the philosopher Wittgenstein about how difficult—how structurally impossible it is—to analyze a cultural phenomenon from inside of it, but I was never able to find the quote and am now not even sure it was from Wittgenstein. It’s no matter because I found something else he said, in a diary entry in October of 1916, that is probably more applicable to the project that Museum of Capitalism has undertaken:

“What cannot be imagined cannot even be talked about.”
