Diagnosis and Dissolution

From Augustine’s Picture to Wittgenstein’s Picture Theory


Dale Lindskog

The main theme of this book is Wittgenstein’s later diagnosis of the confusion underlying the picture theory of the proposition. This leads to a re-interpretation of Wittgenstein’s method of philosophy in Philosophical Investigations. Wittgenstein’s method is diagnostic to an extent that has not been realized, and thus not clarified. Wittgenstein’s practice of dissolving a philosophical problem, by showing how that problem arises, is much more predominant than most realize.
