Wittgenstein: The Limits of Meaning

June 27, 2021 Off By Felso

He had read Schopenhauer in his youth and concluded that Schopenhauer was (in his own words) basically right.

In the later part of his life, he accepted a holistic view of reality divided between the phenomenal world of our experience, which we can talk about and try to understand, in a space for which we cannot have a conceptual understanding and therefore can say nothing. For him, philosophy had to confine itself to the world we could talk about in order to be intelligible; If he crossed this line, meaninglessness awaited him.
