Un nuevo Platón emerge de las cuestiones que laten en este libro.

Pictures whose pictorial form is logical form (which is all pictures) are called logical pictures. Logical pictures, and only logical pictures, can represent the world, truly or falsely. Thus the nature of the truefalse sign, which we have been calling the proposition, is now clear: it is a logical picture of facts. 4 LANGUAGE (cf.

With reference. The requirement that names of simple objects be possible is the requirement 20 An Approach to Wittgenstein's Philosophy that sense be determinate. ) There remains the problem, however, how propositions exhibit structure and logical form. The phrase 'broom-like' cannot serve this purpose, nor can any other words for structures and relations from ordinary language. In the complete analysis of a sentence which describes a complex, there must be an actual structure, for this alone can represent a combination of objects.

It should be balanced by the observation that in his early period Wittgenstein did conceive language as human. This conception did not properly belong with the old logic, however, but rather anticipated the new logic developed later. Wittgenstein wrote the following remark already in I9J4, but it could stand alongside his later thoughts: When we hear a Chinese, we are inclined to take his speech for an inarticulate gurgle. Someone who understands Chinese will recognise language in it. So I often cannot recognise a human being in a human being.
