Introducing Wittgenstein by John Heaton

December 8, 2017

IWI know him most of all because of his notion of ‘language games’ so was disappointed to we nothing here about this.

The story of his life and loves, though, was interesting.

(The Tractatus) “Its purpose would be achieved if it gave pleasure to one person who read and understood it.”

“The world is all that is the case.”

“What we cannot speak about we must pass over in silence.”

“…the last sentence assumes that only factual propositions are meaningful, so the world consists only in facts…there is a distinction between what can be -said- and what can only be -shown- is being developed organically”
