Wittgenstein's later writings generate loads of controversy and debate, as do the results of his rules for such issues as recognition, wisdom, language and the humanities. Oswald Hanfling addresses a widespeard tendency to ascribe to Wittgenstein perspectives that transcend these he really held.

A similar analysis would apply to Deus genuit D e u m (= Deus est genitor Del), or even Christus est Filius Dei. This analysis is compatible with my view on Aquinas' predilection for the theory of inherence since no identity results from the supposition itself of parts of these predicates; 105) H. Enders, 1975, pp. T. Geach, 1950: J. Pinhorg, 1972, p. A. Moody, 1953, p. M. de Rijk, 1970h; 1. Malcolm, 1979: K. Muller, 1983, pp. 9611491205: See on the same object: J. Trentmann, 1968; C. Dufour, 1989, p.
However, in those texts, and they are many, in which the first meaning is used, Aquinas does not talk about sup p 0 sit i 0 Jonnalls, but about teneriJormaliter, which indicates signification rather than supposition. We will return to this when discussing the logic of reduplication. 2 ad 3 where Aquinas uses this example; the term Deus is both a common or universal and a singular term; due to it being a singular term it is not used in plural in the example given. 4 ad 6; cr. 9; DP3 10; cf. g. g.
The rejected reasoning is simple: if there is an identity of essence and supposit in God, then the terms expressing each are interchangeable as well. The interpretation of Essentia genuit Essentiam would then be: Pater genuit Filium, the Father brings forth the Son. Aquinas rejects this view, since essentia does not have the mode of signification which would make the predication of personal properties possible. The same kind of argument can be found in Aquinas' christology8J. 'Given that the Son of God has suffered, and Son and divine nature are identical, divine nature can be said to have suffered', is unacceptable since it does not respect' the different modes of signification of Filius and divina natura84 • 58 80) Et haec opinio processisse videtur ex consideratione divinae simplicitatis, quae requirit quod in Deo idem sit habens et quod habetur: et sic 'habens deitatem', quod signijicat hoc nomen 'Deus', est idem quod 'deitas'.
