The Theory of Truth and the Theory of Sense in "Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus"
Philosophy
(Bachelor’s programme)
8
2017
The aim of this research is an attempt to interpret the "Tractatus logico-philosophicus" by introducing additional assumption, according to which L.Wittgenstein, writing this text, was basing on universalistic premice that it's impossible to ascribe meta-language - in the sense of D.Davidson - to natural language. Basing on this assumption we introduce two possible readings of Tractatus - as an attempt to reduce to absurd the idea of conceptual analysis and as an attempt to demonstrate the methodological alternative to conceptual analysis. The main method is contrasting tractarian propositions to each other to clarify whether or not they correspond to one of these two readings. The anticipated results consists in impossibility to give the determinating argument in favour of one of these interpretations
