In this paper I discuss Davide Sparti’s book Wittgenstein politico and I examine the possibility to read Wittgenstein’s later works from an ethical and political point of view. I defend the following thesis: we can understand the political interest of Wittgenstein’s philosophy only if we analyse its ethical value.

I pay attention especially to the main themes presented in Sparti’s book, and I sketch an analysis of the relationship between Philosophische Untersuchungen’s ethical meaning and the ethical meaning of the whole wittgensteinian approach to philosophy. Moreover, I argue against the tendency currently shown by philosophy of politics to judge Wittgenstein’s thought a conservative one.
