(p.1) Introduction
Thought's Footing

Charles Travis (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter begins with an explanation of the central methodological principle that to understand what Wittgenstein is up to at any given point in the Philosophical Investigations one should look to Frege: how what Wittgenstein says may be a reaction to something Frege said. It describes a closely knit line of thought as it develops in the Investigations. An overview of the chapters included in the volume is also presented.

Keywords:   Wittgenstein, Frege, Philosophical Investigations
