Sharing and building Solution Focused practice in organisations

Daniele Moyal-Sharrock's papers from SOLWorld 2010

We were honoured to have Professor Daniele Moyal-Sharrock join us in Bucharest as a plenary speaker. Daniele is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire, UK, and one of the world's leading Wittgenstein scholars. She is also President of the British Wittgenstein Society (

Daniele presented her paper Coming to Language: Wittgenstein's Social 'Theory' of Language Acquisition, which I attached to this posting. She also presented some reflections on elements of Wittgenstein which she could see for herself as connecting to SF practice.

We would like to thank Daniele both for her participation in the whole conference, and for her generous sharing of these materials.

Thank You Daniele and Mark for the paper. Unfortunately I could not participate in the conference in Bucharest but in this way at least I get the opportunity to read the contribution of Daniele.

Thank You Daniele and Mark for posting the paper. I am still a "fan" of Wittgenstein and I think in his Philosophical Investigations is the key for solutions I am looking for.

Thanks for posting this - a real treat for the people, who, like me, could not make it to Bucharest.
I also have a passion for Wittgenstein - so this is a double treat for me! :)
I will comment further, though, because I think that Wittgenstein's Theory of Language Acquisition, as outlined by Prof. Daniele Moyal-Sharrock, is exactly the wrong topic to pick, i.e. the one part of Wittgenstein's thought that did not do that well over time. I mean, if you use Fodor to characterize the "mentalese" position you must be pretty desperate!

Thank you Danielle and Mark, for your helpful collaboration in making this horizon-widening presentation now also available for re-reading! Looking forward to understand the content one notch higher on the scale now ...

Thank you Mark for making it available to us. Reconnecting with philosophy and Wittgenstein was in itself a dear and special event for me at SOLWORLD. And I express my appreciation for all those who made such remarkable connections with SF.




Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
