Analytic Philosophy

Ludwig Wittgenstein

What are some examples of
Wittgenstein’s propositions in his Tractatus?

  • The world is all that is the case.

  • A proposition is a picture of reality.

  • Propositions show the logical form of reality. They display it.

  • What can be shown, cannot be said.

  • The general form of a proposition is: This is how things stand.

  • All the propositions of logic say the same thing, to wit nothing.

  • The limits of my language mean the limits of my world.
