Objectivity and the Parochial

This discusses the development of Wittgenstein's notion of proposition from the Tractatus to the Investigations. It charts how Wittgenstein's conception of necessity changes from around Philosophical Grammar to the Investigations. If necessity is not just arbitrary, one idea is, that is because of the work of the parochial in forming it. Language games, family resemblance and rule following are also discussed.

Keywords:   Wittgenstein, logic, necessity, language games, alien thought
