Johannes Climacus reads the Tractatus

Sebastiaan A. Verschuren
From the journal Wittgenstein-Studien


James Conant’s farthest point of resolute navigation into the Tractatus has up to now received very little attention: a division of Tractarian matters among two separate lists. In this paper, I argue that this division is deeply mistaken as it fails to see the unity of logic in the Tractatus. This unity is anyway a much neglected topic in the literature on Wittgenstein’s early philosophy. Conant’s resolute reading of the Tractatus provides a good opportunity to bring it to the fore and to illustrate its pivotal importance.
