Recent decades have seen a renewed interest in ecclesiology as postliberal theologians, such as Hauer was, have found it useful to ally with communitarian critics in order to promote the church as an alternative to individualism. In doing so, they have often enlisted Wittgenstein as an ally. Much of this work has been laudable, yet it seems to have been accompanied by an inability to also speak articulately about the individuals in those communities. By attending to the place of Augustine's Confessions in the Philosophical Investigations, this chapter reads Wittgenstein alongside Emerson in an attempt to distance him from the communitarians.

Keywords:   postliberalism, Stanley Hauerwas, ecclesiology, communitarianism, Wittgenstein, Emerson, Augustine, Philosophical Investigations
