From the «Tractatus» to the «Tractatus» and Other Essays


Gianluigi Oliveri

The present collection of essays aims at casting light on important elements of Wittgenstein‘s thought and intellectual development.
Some of Wittgenstein’s ideas are here discussed using the «Tractatus» as a frame of reference, others by relating them to the views of G. Frege, G.E.M. Anscombe and D. Davidson.
