From Encyclopaedia of Ireland, 1968

As in medieval times, so again during and after the second World War, Ireland benefited from an influx of foreign scholars. . . .  Outstanding amongst these were the physicist Erwin Schrödinger, for a time a Director and later Senior Professor of the Institute for Advanced Studies, Jan Łukasiewicz who was Professor of Logic at the Royal Irish Academy and Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951), who wrote volume two of this Philosophical Investigations while living here, between 1947 and 1949.

Schrödinger, who was in effect a Vedantist, feared that his views would upset Dubliners . . . but happily they failed to notice them. On identity, Schrödinger wrote ‘we must dismiss the idea that a particle is an individual entity which retains its identity. The question of sameness really, really has no meaning.’ Of lovers he remarked ‘their thoughts and their joys are numerically one’.

    The Tarner Lectures were established with the requirement that the lecturer speak “on the philosophy of the sciences and the relations or want of relations between the different departments of knowledge.”
