Nice tutorial on Wittgenstein’s conception of grammar

I’m a bit overwhelmed with finals and papers, but I did have a chance to read about half of Robert Wesley Angelo’s tutorial on Wittgenstein’s philosophy of language.

He provides a very user-friendly characterization of Wittgenstein’s concept of grammar and more importantly, Wittgenstein’s intention with his overall project.  You can view it at

  1. That’s great, thanks a lot for that link. I was always disappointed with the fact that my thesis lacked a sufficient inclusion of Husserl’s intentionality. It only later occurred to me, AFTER the oral defense of the thesis, that failure to do so was fairly epic.

    I do hope they post the paper, I’d be very interested to see it. The only paper I recall reading that explicitly dealt with Husserl and Wittgenstein re: intentionality was something called “Wittgenstein and the Snark” and then something about social naturalism. I have the paper but do not currently have access to it as I’m away from my desktop.

  2. Robert, fantastic work!!! Thank you for sharing! I am a PhD student applying Wittgenstein’s latter ideas to International Relations, and your blog is such a great tool! I will pass the recommendation forward! Thank you once again!

  3. I would like to call your attention (self-servingly!) to my recent “Language and the Ineffable” (Lexington Books, 2011) — a radical take on what language is and does (and isn’t, and doesn’t do). Feedback appreciated.
