The Magic Prism: An Essay in the Philosophy of Language

Howard Wettstein


This book presents the development of an anti-Fregean conception on the philosophy of language. It argues that Wittgenstein not only anticipated the important features of the anti-Fregean approach, but provided a deeper and more satisfying rationale than recent works. Where Wittgenstein sharply diverged from the anti-Fregeans, he pointed the way forward.

Keywords: Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, philosophy of language
