This article proposes the character of Hadji Murat as a lens through which to explore Wittgenstein’s moral philosophy. After portraying heroism as being able to look death squarely in the face and reminding us that being heroic is a question of pathos, it considers heroism both historically and individually. Different peoples associate their pathos with different kinds of actions. The figure of Hadji Murat is presented as a key to understanding Wittgenstein’s anthropological method, and the novel as containing paradigms of actions, some of which are still in circulation and others that are no longer feasible
