Translated title of the contribution: The problem of relevant world reflection in the philosophy of ludwig wittgenstein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The article analyses the problem of relevant world representation by language in Wittgenstein's works. The study is based on the author's assumption that language defines the possibilities of cognition. The idea of identity between language and the world's logical structure makes the author undertake language "purification" by relating its meaningfulness to logic. Wittgenstein's altered attitude towards the cognitive possibilities of natural language transforms the emphases of language investigation, but the philosopher continues the study of cognitive possibilities of meaningful language without refusing the requirement for definition of meaning. The article highlights Wittgenstein's new position. He transforms the investigation of language from cognitive possibilities by logical modeling into understanding language as a true and adequate interpretation analysis about the situation. It is emphasized that the changed paradigm of language investigation does not modify the aim of Wittgenstein's philosophical analysis - to search for the relevant world representation in language.
