Societies: Evolutionary and Comparative Perspectives

This is often the 1st of a two-volume examine of

The picture can serve as a proposition. But in that case something gets added to it which brings it about that now it says something. In short: I can only deny that the picture is right, but the picture I cannot deny. 14) Wittgenstein conceives affirmation and negation as the two ways of symbolizing (Bezeichnungsweise) that must be attached to the picture for it to determine sense-2. This is a first step in order to solve Problem 4: the state of affairs that is represented by “aRb” and “~aRb” is the same, even if what they say (sense-2) is different.

The first novelty is a recourse to the pair possibility/factualness to account for the determination of sense with independence of truth. Instead of having the same constituents in judgement and in judged fact with two different ways of combining them in thought and reality (like in OTF-Theory and TK-Theory), leaving sense undetermined, Wittgenstein distinguishes between constituents of the depicting and the depicted fact and requires them to share their logical form, that is, their possibility of combination into states of 8 9 A further contrast between Russell’s and Wittgenstein’s theories concerns the belief statement.

The Case of the Duck / Rabbit Abstract: In Remarks on the philosophy of psychology Wittgenstein uses ambiguous illusions to investigate the problematic relation of perception and interpretation. I use this problem as a starting point for developing a conceptual framework capable of expressing problems associated with visual perception in a precise manner.
