L. Wittgenstein – Philosophical Investigations

But if you say: “How am I to know what he means, when I see nothing but the signs he gives?”

then I say: “How is he to know what he means, when he has nothing but the signs either?”

    The picture above shows a “Red Label” … lots of meaning … my first reaction was “the Black Label” is better … signs are meaningful.

    P.I. ranks somewhere in my top-ten of works produced by philosophers in the 20th century. Its content is so incredibly trans-formative to one’s thinking that it can hardly be overstated.

    “The Duty of Genius” by Ray Monk, in terms of secondary literature on Wittgenstein, is my personal favorite.
