LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN'S PROGRESSIVE ANTIMETAPHYSICISM (II) (Postepujacy antymetafizycyzm Ludwiga Wittgensteina (II))
Languages of publication
The present paper is the last part of the two-piece article which concerns Ludwig Wittgenstein's antometaphysicism. It begins dealing with so the called tractarian ontology of simple objects and a logical form. Subsequently, I consider the problem of the sense of the 'Tractatus' itself which recognizes its own theses as nonsensical. This curious situation can be interpreted in two different ways and I sketch both of them. Then I move on to the reasons of Wittgenstein's rejection of the 'Tractatus' in 'Some Remarks of Logical Form' and the process of forging the new idea of the language. The main goal of the last part of my article was to show the roots of the famous language-game concept in 19th century's mathematical formalism of Thomae and Heine.
