Vom System zum Gebrauch
Eine genetisch-philosophische Untersuchung des Grammatikbegriffs bei Wittgenstein
[From a System of Grammar to Grammar as Use. A Genetic-Philosophical Investigation of Wittgenstein's Notion of Grammar]
Series:Über Wittgenstein 3
Aims and Scope
While metaphysics is traditionally seen as dealing with the essence of things, for Wittgenstein it is grammar. But what does he mean by "grammar"? And does he mean the same thing by this word throughout his philosophical career? In this investigation, I strive to contribute to answering to these questions. I argue that Wittgenstein's notion of grammar has evolved and changed over the years of his philosophising.
