The Iran Book News Agency explains what inspired Austrian writer Thomas Bernhard.
. . . whose mysterious stories are inspired by Heidegger's and Wittgenstein's philosophies.
Inspired by a hatred of Heidegger, more likely--at least from the few excerpts by TB Ive read. Not sure of his views on St.Witt (or MH's--tho' I doubt Vati H. cared for him or his philosophy much).
I can see where his Correction was inspired by Witt, whereas saying Bernhard was inspired by MH is ironic.
I've read that academic philosophy in Iran is split into Heideggerian and Popperian factions. I expect the Popperians read the Tractatus. Not sure which factions reads Philosophical Investigations.
