Elucidating the ‘Tractatus’

Marie McGinn (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the principal aims to the book. An interpretative anti-metaphysical approach to the Tractatus is developed and placed within the context of the current debate between the so-called traditional and so-called resolute reading by Cora Diamond and James Conant. It is argued that although the interpretative tradition to which the reading belongs provides a distinctive, third approach to the work, an attempt is also made to bring out its clear affinities with the interpretations of Diamond, Conant, Ricketts, and others.

Keywords:   traditional reading, resolute reading, Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations
