How is it possible that we human beings are able to impose on one another norms and rules? Whence do these rules take their power or authority to be effective? This book intends to answer such questions, tagged by philosophers as “the problem of normativity”, with the help of some reflections made by the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951), especially in the second part of his thinking (after 1929). Although the book is not a work on Wittgenstein sensu stricto, it may be understood as an exercise that goes from his arguments on normativity to some ethical and political conclusions, conclusions in many ways akin to the hermeneutical-nihilistic approach of the Italian philosopher Gianni Vattimo (1936-).
