Pears outlines Wittgenstein's argumentative move against the doctrine of solipsism, and connects the different lines of thought that accumulate in Wittgenstein's reaction to the doctrine. Pears examines the doctrine that the limits of one's language are the limits of one's world, and sets the stage for the discussion of Wittgenstein's later philosophy by critically examining the earlier conception of the subject.
