This chapter discusses Wittgenstein's notion of meaning. It begins by considering Russell's lectures on logical atomism. It then focuses on Wittgenstein's theory that with each proposition there is associated some part of the world which is its meaning. The chapter then looks at the sketchiness of Wittgenstein's theory of meaning.

Keywords:   Wittgenstein, Russell, theory of meaning, propositional meaning, logical atomism
