Wittgenstein's Notes on Logic

Michael Potter (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the metaphysical aspects of the Notes. It argues that although there is rather little in the Notes that can be regarded as straightforwardly metaphysical, this indicates not so much that Wittgenstein thought metaphysics was hopeless as that he had a specific view about how metaphysical conclusions might be reached. What was seen in operation in the Notes — perhaps, indeed, because of the lack of relevant data — is a developing method of approaching metaphysics via the symbolism. Wittgenstein's understanding of psychology, epistemology, and philosophy of value are discussed.

Keywords:   Wittgenstein, metaphysics, psychology, epistemology, philosophy of value
