I wish I were in that landscape of yours. It must be similar to the landscape in Norway, which I love.
(Ludwig Wittgenstein, writing to G. H. von Wright in Finland, 13 September 1939)


This is a bibliography of (1) Finnish translations of the writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein; (2) secondary literature on Wittgenstein written by Finnish scholars; and (3) Finnish translations of secondary literature written by foreign scholars. Items by foreign scholars published in Finland in languages other than Finnish have been left out.
In my work on the bibliography, I have striven for completeness, within reason – even though it would have been tempting to engage in national self-censorship in some cases. Undoubtedly there are omissions, especially regarding newspapers and magazines which are not adequately indexed, but the bulk of Finnish writing on Wittgenstein is certainly covered. (In the cases of writers like Aulis Aarnio or Esa Itkonen, who are deeply influenced by Wittgenstein but have rarely dwelled explicitly on him at length, it has been hard to decide what to include and what to exclude. I hope my decisions were the right ones.)
As could be expected, many of the entries listed are in Finnish or Swedish. However, I have included English abstracts for most of the entries I have been able to examine, except in cases where the subject matter is more or less evident from the title of the item. Authors’ abstracts taken from the publications themselves are marked [AA].
I would like to thank the many people who have helped me with this project in one way or another, and especially Mr. Kivi Ketelimäki and Dr. Thomas Wallgren for supplying a number of items from their personal archives.

1.       Aalto, Maija, »Descartes ja Wittgensteinin yksityiskieliargumentti», niin & näin 7 (2000), 4: 43–47.
The main target of W.’s private language argument is usually taken to be Cartesianism, but textual evidence shows that the historical Descartes was not committed to the idea of a private language.
2.       Aalto, Maija, »Thoughts of the Tractatus: Mentalism vs. Non-Mentalism», in Rudolf Haller and Klaus Puhl (eds.), Wittgenstein and the Future of Philosophy, vol. 1 (Kirchberg am Wechsel: Austrian Ludwig Wittgenstein Society, 2001): 13–21.
Criticizes the view that the »thoughts» discussed in the Tractatus are mental processes giving life to propositional signs. Pace the interpretations of Donna Summerfield and Norman Malcolm, the Tractatus thoughts are not analogous to the »language of thought» postulated in recent philosophy of mind, but are instead a purely formal concept.
3.       Aalto, Maija, »Wittgenstein on the Nature of Religious Belief», in Tapio Korte and Juha Räikkä (eds.), Philosophical Perspectives: Essays in Honour of Seppo Sajama on His 50th Birthday (Turku: University of Turku, Department of Philosophy, 2002): 63–82.
An essay of an introductory nature, discussing both W.’s views on religion and the standard philosophical objections directed at them.

          18 p.; ISBN 951-678-154-3.
An elementary exposition of W.’s conception of meaning as use.
6.       Aaltola, Juhani, Merkitys ja opettaminen: kielipeliin kietoutuva teema Wittgensteinilla (Jyväskylä: Jyväskylän yliopisto, Filosofian laitos, 1985).

Revised and expanded edition of item 5, with special reference to teaching.
7.       Aaltola, Juhani, Merkitys opettamisen ja oppimisen näkökulmasta Wittgensteinin myöhäisfilosofian ja pragmatismin valossa (Jyväskylä: Jyväskylän yliopisto, 1989).
          249 p.: illus.; ISBN 951-680-086-6.
A historical and theoretical examination of W.’s notion of meaning with special reference to the activities of teaching and learning. In developing his pragmatic conception of language, W. was influenced by American pragmatism; this came via his reading of James, conversations with Ramsey and association with the Austrian school reform movement.
8.       Aaltola, Mika, »Lumottu aika: peli, aika ja kansainvälinen politiikka Wittgensteinin valossa», in Kia Lindroos and Kari Palonen (eds.), Politiikan aikakirja: ajan politiikan ja politiikan ajan teoretisointia (Tampere: Vastapaino, 2000): 129–157.
Using W.’s views about the nature of language, the author examines different conceptions of time as they are manifested in international politics. He goes on to argue that researchers in political science have often emphasized W.’s rule-following considerations at the expense of his insights into the rough, frictional and indeterminate nature of social intercourse.
9.       Aarnio, Aulis, Legal Reasoning (Turku: Turun yliopisto, 1977).
          xiii, 355 p.: illus.; ISBN 951-641-462-1.
Numerous references to W.’s views on the nature of language and their implications for the philosophy of law.

12.     Aarnio, Aulis, »Oikeusfilosofi kevätjäällä», Oikeus 28 (1999): 75–77.
Reply to item 250. By using the example of the Paris standard metre, W. does not seek to undermine the conventional nature of knowledge, as Siltala claims, but to emphasize it. Siltala also ignores W.’s On Certainty and its discussion of the status of knowledge.
13.     Ahonen, Hanne, »Merkityksen ja ymmärtämisen käsitteet kielessä ja musii-kissa: Wittgenstein ja formalismi», niin & näin 5 (1998), 3: 26–31.
In both the Tractatus and his later writings, W. puts forward a number of views which have interesting parallels with the formalist tradition in musical aesthetics, and especially with the writings of Eduard Hanslick.
14.     Airaksinen, Timo, »Meaning and Knowledge: The Place of Criterion in Epistemology», Dialectics and Humanism 8 (1981): 113–122.
Discusses the role of epistemological criteria in analytic philosophy as dealt with by W. and by J. L. Austin. It is unclear whether criteria belong primarily to the field of semantics or to epistemology. The semantic aspect appears more basic than the epistemological one.
15.     Airaksinen, Timo, »On Non-Foundationalistic Theories of Epistemic Justification», Southern Journal of Philosophy 19 (1981): 403–412.
Includes analysis of the notion of a »criterion» used by W. in his discussions of the problem of other minds.

          Reprint of item 16.
W.’s designated literary executors express reservations regarding any project of publishing those of his notes that had been circulated privately. They announce the forthcoming publication of Philosophical Investigations, a book manuscript which W. left in an almost complete form.
17.     Anscombe, G. E. M.; Rhees, Rush; and Wright, G. H. von, »Notes and News», Journal of Philosophy 54 (1957): 484.
The literary executors believe that, for various reasons, the version of W.’s »Notes on Logic» published by Costello in 1957 is unreliable. They also announce the imminent publication of W.’s pre-Tractatus notebooks.
18.     Anscombe, G. E. M.; Rhees, Rush; and Wright, G. H. von, »Wittgenstein’s Tractatus», Times Literary Supplement, 18 February 1965.
The literary executors criticize representatives of C. K. Ogden’s estate for refu-sing them access to W.’s letters to Ogden, and promise to qualify criticisms of Ogden’s translation of the Tractatus made in their own writings if the letters turn out to prove that these are unfounded.
19.     Anscombe, G. E. M.; Rhees, Rush; and Wright, G. H. von, »Wittgenstein’s Tractatus», Times Literary Supplement, 9 October 1970.
The literary executors retract item 18 and announce the forthcoming publication of W.’s letters to C. K. Ogden with the consent of Ogden’s heirs.

An essay on W.’s philosophy of religion and the mystical. W.’s significance is that he »gives intellectual legitimation to the belief of the church in the good as the meaning of life».
24.     Elomaa, E., »A Universal Hamlet?», Nature, 16 May 1991: 179.
In opposition to J. R. Smythies’s suggestion that W. was a paranoid schizophrenic, the author proposes that he should instead be seen as a »universal Hamlet figure of our time». W.’s remarks on madness in On Certainty show that he was aware of the resemblance of philosophy to insanity, and his insights on the subject are comparable to Shakespeare’s depiction of madness in Othello, Macbeth and Hamlet.
25.     Elomaa, E., »Wittgenstein’s Schizophrenia in Moonlight», Medical Hypotheses 40 (1993): 127–128.
The author suggests sardonically that W.’s remarks on the role of world-pictures in scientific investigation in On Certainty give a good characterization of scientific research as a bourgeois profession.
26.     Gefwert, Christoffer, »Wittgenstein and Turing: The Illusion of Machine Intelligence», in Antti Hautamäki and Göte Nyman (eds.), Kognitiotiede ja koneäly: seminaari 20.3.1991, Helsingin yliopisto (Helsinki: Suomen tekoälyseura, 1992): 44–63.
From the point of view of W., Alan Turing’s discussions of machine intelligence rest on a category mistake involving the Cartesian dichotomy between mind and matter. W.’s remark that Turing’s »machines» are really »humans who calculate» is interpreted and defended.

          xiv, 287 p.; ISBN 952-9616-47-3.
This historical as well as philosophical book deals with W.’s thought on philosophy, mathematics and language in his post-1929 writings. It claims that W. regarded language of mathematics to be transcendental. The book itself covers the following topics: (1) W.’s writings on mathematics during his early years 1912–1921 including his transcendental view of language; (2) A comparison between the respective thoughts of W. and Brouwer; (3) The historical background to W.’s return to Cambridge and post-1929 writings on philosophy and mathematics; (4) W.’s novel post-1929 »method» of philosophy in contrast to the Anti-Realist interpretations; (5) Different aspects (surveyability, etc.) of the language of mathematics when understood as calculi (language games);
(6) The crucial features of mathematical calculation occurring in W.’s texts on mat-hematics; (7) W. on the »foundations» of mathematics especially with emphasis on the so-called »consistency problem», »decidability problem» as well as Gödel’s incompleteness theorems; and (8) »Wittgenstein on Language, Minds, and Machines» where we investigate his relation to the writings of Alan Turing and the possibility of there existing a genuine »machine intelligence».

Attributions to W. of various meaning-theoretical intentions, while popular among analytically minded philosophers, are deeply contrary to the spirit of his philosophy. His philosophy was remarkably systematic, but this does not mean that it was theoretical as well.
29.     Gefwert, Christoffer, Wittgenstein on Mathematics, Minds and Mental Machines (Aldershot: Ashgate, 1998).
          xx, 349 p.; ISBN 1-84014-308-8.
Revised and expanded edition of item 27. This book investigates W.’s conception of mathematics and philosophy during his career as a philosopher. His early view (1912–1920) of mathematics in the Tractatus (and later), can be understood as a constructivist conception in comparison to the »classical» interpretation that has so far been provided. Thus it is not »logistic» in the sense of Frege or Russell. It reminds one of the constructivist view formulated by the mathematician and philosopher Per Martin-Löf. In W.’s view, mathematical calculation turns out to be »transcendental» in its nature. Despite that, it can be classified as constructi-vist, differing in a number of points from Brouwer’s solipsistic view concerning the »foundations» of mathematics. W.’s later post-1929 view retains this conception of mathematics but, in opposition to his position in the Tractatus, it expli-citly distinguishes the activity of mathematical calculation from the activity of philosophical investigations in different calculations. The book also investigates different aspects of W.’s conception of mathematical calculation. In addition it looks at his denial of the validity of Hilbert’s meta-mathematical »research programme» concerning the foundations of mathematics. The result is W.’s denial of the »global» consistency and decision problems as expressing genuine mathematical tasks in mathematics. The author also examines the relationship between Gödel’s famous incompleteness theorem and W.’s conception of »openness» of mathematical calculations. In addition he finds that W. denied the existence of conceptually independent »machine (artificial) intelligence» in his texts. [AA]
30.     Gefwert, Christoffer, Wittgenstein on Thought, Language and Philosophy: From Theory to Therapy (Aldershot: Ashgate, 2000).
          xvii, 316 p.; ISBN 0-7546-1214-7.
What was W.’s relation to »theory of meaning» in his post-1937 writings and what was his characterization of »philosophy»? How does »philosophy» in W.’s later writings differ from what is usually accepted in modern academic »analytic» philosophy? This book discusses problems encountered in looking at W.’s texts after 1937, focusing particularly on whether the problem of philosophy amounts to a systematic or a theoretical activity. Arguing that philosophy can be characterized as a form of conceptual investigation, the author aims to demonstrate that a theoretical view does not correspond to W.’s conception of philosophy. For example, philosophy is not transcendental as he thought it was before 1929. Neither is philosophical language universal as W. thought in 1929–1936. Proposing that a philosophical conceptual investigation is analogous to a psychotherapeutical session of Freud, with the common aim to dissolve the conceptual problems in language that haunt us in our everyday life, the author’s examination of the post-1937 writings of W. concludes that »philosophical investigation» is a very different activity than that assumed by the logical positivists and others adhering to a theoretical view.

A discussion of various proposed solutions to the so-called W.ian rule-following paradox, defending Philip Pettit’s views on it.
35.     Haukioja, Jussi, »Soames and Zalabardo on Kripke’s Wittgenstein», Grazer philosophische Studien 64 (2002): 157–173.
Two counter-arguments, given by Scott Soames and José Zalabardo, to Saul Kripke’s W.-inspired »normativity» argument against dispositional theories of meaning are evaluated. Both counter-arguments proceed by distinguishing two different readings of Kripke’s argumentation, an »epistemological» and a »metaphysical» reading. Two results are established. First, Kripke intended the latter, metaphysical, reading. Second, the counter-arguments presented by Soames and Zalabardo against the metaphysical reading of the argument are both unsuccessful. [AA]
36.     Heinimaa, Markus, »’Filosofia terapiana’ -metafora Wittgensteinin filosofiassa», Ajatus 48 (1991): 152–181.
A close reading of all the known passages in the W. corpus where parallels are drawn between philosophy and therapy. The recurring metaphor of therapy is an apt way of characterizing W.’s view of philosophy as work correcting the misleading impressions made by linguistic forms.
37.     Helling, Lennart, »Filosofi med eller utan förnuft?», Hufvudstadsbladet, 10 August 1995.
Reply to item 68. D. Z. Phillips’s discussion of the problem of evil in Christianity is intellectually and morally unsatisfactory.
38.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Marx och Wittgenstein», Häften för kritiska studier 2 (1969), 7–8: 39–46.
Marx and W. are two philosophers who revolt against the dominant technologico-scientific view of the world. W.’s attack on the empiricist conception of language and his emphasis on the social character of linguistic meaning are both congenial to Marxist philosophy.
39.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Wittgenstein, filosofi», trans. Timo Alanko, Parnasso 21 (1971): 501–509.
An introductory essay on W.’s personality and his conception of philosophy.
40.     Hertzberg, Lars, »On the Factual Dependence of the Language Game», in Jaakko Hintikka (ed.), Essays on Wittgenstein in Honour of G. H. von Wright (Amsterdam: North-Holland, 1976): 126–153.
Examines various circumstances in which one may be torn away from the sureness of a language game (On Certainty § 617), and more generally the way in which language games are conditioned by facts.
41.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Language, Philosophy and Natural History», Ajatus 37 (1978): 328–360.
Discusses the notion of »the natural history of man» in W.’s later philosophy, and the objection that his numerous thought experiments should have been replaced by examples taken from the real world.
42.     Hertzberg, Lars, »On Claiming to Know», in Elisabeth Leinfellner et al. (eds.), Wittgenstein and His Impact on Contemporary Thought (Vienna: Hölder-Pichler-Tempsky, 1978): 389–392.
In On Certainty, W. draws a distinction between two uses of »I know» which the English translation blurs. The following translation is suggested: »‘I know it’ may mean: I am already aware of it – or again: it is certainly so.» The first of these uses of »I know» occurs when the truth of a statement is not in question, and the speaker tell us that what he has been told is no news to him. The second use is used to emphasize assertions. The importance of the distinction for skepticism is discussed.

Donald Davidson’s project in his »Truth and Meaning» (1967) is to find the general form of the propositions of natural language, and as such it has parallels with W.’s proposed definition of this form in Tractatus § 4.5. In both Davidson’s version and W.’s, the project should be viewed as hopeless, because natural language simply has no uniform nature.
46.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Acting as Representation», in Kjell S. Johannessen and Tore Nordenstam (eds.), Wittgenstein: Aesthetics and Transcendental Philosophy (Vienna: Hölder-Pichler-Tempsky, 1981): 136–151.
A discussion, in the context of W.ian aesthetics, of what it means to call an actor’s performance convincing.
47.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Science and Certainty», in Ingmar Pörn (ed.), Essays in Philosophical Analysis: Dedicated to Erik Stenius on the Occasion of His 70th Birthday (Helsinki: Philosophical Society of Finland, 1981): 60–78.
Discusses the treatment of skepticism in W.’s On Certainty in the context of the problem of justifying one’s trust in scientific methods rather than superstition. It is suggested that taking a skeptical attitude to scientific methods would be nonsensical, because the methods themselves take part in defining scientific concepts.

49.     Hertzberg, Lars, »The Indeterminacy of the Mental», Aristotelian Society Supplementary Volume 57 (1983): 91–109.
Explores W.’s suggestion that the uncertainty of judgements about human
motives and feelings is intrinsic to them. According to W., the status of many types of mental judgement is logically different from that of judgements about physical and scientific facts. Psychological research cannot be expected to remove the difference, since it is a priori in character.

51.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Om erfarenhetens logik: anteckningar kring Wittgensteins Über Gewissheit», Norsk filosofisk tidsskrift 19 (1984): 193–204.
W.’s On Certainty has often been approached as a culmination of his later philosophical enterprise. Taking issue with the work of G. H. von Wright and of Harald Grimen, the author suggests that it could rather be seen as a corrective to some tendencies in the Philosophical Investigations, and particularly the tendency to take the builders’ language game in the beginning of the book as a kind of paradigm case of language games.

53.     Hertzberg, Lars, »On Language, Interpretation and the Law», in Aleksander Peczenik (ed.), Meaning, Interpretation and the Law (Tampere: A-Tieto, 1986): 85–95.
Defends W.’s conception of language against W. V. Quine’s in the context of the philosophy of law. One cannot detect vagueness through external observation of linguistic behaviour. In cases where two interpretations seem equally natural, stipulations external to language and arising from human »forms of life» are going to be needed to reach an interpretation of law.
54.     Hertzberg, Lars, »On the Attitude of Trust», Inquiry 31 (1988): 307–322.
In On Certainty, the emphasis is on the solitary individual as subject of know-ledge. The importance of our dependence on others, however, is brought out in W.’s remarks about trust. In this paper, the role and nature of trust are discussed, the grammar of trust being contrasted with that of reliance. It is shown that to speak of trust is to speak of a fundamental attitude of one person towards others, an attitude which, unlike reliance, is not to be explained, or assessed, by an appeal to reasons. It is, rather, because we have such a fundamental readiness to accept what we are taught by others that we can come to develop an understan-ding of reasons. The idea that believing something without evidence is always a weakness is shown to be a philosophical prejudice. Trust is always something we can rightfully demand from others: misplaced trust, accordingly, is not a shortcoming on the part of the trustful person, but of the person in whom the trust was placed. The destruction of trust is a tragedy of life; in Culture and Value, W. suggests a connection between distrust and madness. [AA]

Taking W.’s remarks in the Philosophical Investigations as a point of departure, the author discusses the problem of how we can speak of an intention apart from its execution.
59.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Yhteisön tärkeys Wittgensteinin myöhäisajattelussa», Tiede & edistys 14 (1989): 219–222.
The so-called »community view» as a condition for linguistic rule-following is false both as a philosophical view and as an interpretation of W. The problem with a solitary speaker of a language is not that he lacks a criterion to differentiate between correct and incorrect usage, but that – being isolated from the social life which gives rise to language – he lacks the need for one.

A discussion of W.’s remarks on the human naturalness of certain expressions and utterances, and of the implication of this for moral life. The difference between the roles the spontaneous and the conventional play in human life is illustrated by reference to Henry James’s novel Portrait of a Lady.
64.     Hertzberg, Lars, »Primitive Reactions: Logic or Anthropology?», Midwest Studies in Philosophy 17 (1992): 24–39.
Remarks on W.’s notion of primitive reactions and the question whether philosophy should approach them as a logical or an empirical phenomenon. It is suggested that what can be seen as a primitive reaction in the logical sense depends on the reaction’s making sense to us in the context in which it occurs, and thus on its being a reaction we can share in.

Reply to Mark H. Bickhard and Robert L. Campbell, »Some Foundational Questions Concerning Language Studies», Journal of Pragmatics 17 (1992): 401–433. Bickhard and Campbell are right to emphasize the interactive character of language. As regards the dichotomy between viewing language as a description of reality and viewing it as a form of human communication, they unsatisfactorily remain on the former side, unlike W.

Rush Rhees is primarily known as an expounder of W.’s philosophy. However, his depth and originality as a thinker is increasingly recognized, largely due to the posthumous publication of his Nachlass. In this essay, characteristic features of Rhees’s philosophical style and method are conveyed through comparing and contrasting them with those of W. His most distinctive contributions to philosophy were concerned with language and religion. Rhees’s views on the unity of language are compared to those of W., and in conclusion Rhees’s thinking about religion is presented through a close reading of one of his essays on that topic. [AA]

A critique of the first volume of item 157. Krohn is guilty of many elementary misunderstandings of logical empiricism in general and of the Tractatus in particular. He constantly confuses logical questions with material ones, while logical empiricism always seeks to keep them separate. Krohn also gives the misleading impression that W. is still teaching at Cambridge, whereas he actually resigned his chair in 1948.

          Reprint of item 84a.
The reference to solipsism in the Tractatus (§ 5.62) has often been understood in the ordinary meaning of the word, but it actually means the opposite: the limits of a subject’s thought and language are the limits of language in general, and there is no private world.

A version of the picture theory of language of the Tractatus is extended to all first-order (quantificational) languages, by interpreting Hintikka’s model sets as partial pictures (isomorphs) of possible worlds in which their members are true. Each quantificational proof becomes an unsuccessful attempt to depict a world in which the theorem proved would be false.

Discusses Philosophical Investigations §§ 245 and 265. The former presents an objection to be disposed of and does not offer a reason for W.’s own position. The operative words of the latter (»Die richtige Erinnerung») can be read, not as referring to the actual correctness of memory, but rather to the right choice among several available memory images.

W.’s picture theory of language is similar to Tarskian logical semantics, except for the crucial W.ian doctrine that semantic relations can only be shown, not said. In his later work W. does not reject the semantics of the Tractatus, but introduces the theory of language games, which are what creates and sustains the relationship between reality and language.

In 1928, W. ceased to believe that truth-function theory is complete. Therefore language-world comparisons could not be immediate, but required human operations on the propositions in question. Initially, this meant that atomic propositions contained numerical parameters and that the operations needed were arithmetical calculations. Hence mathematics was now more fundamental than logic, a view W. also found in Brouwer. Since language belongs to the physical world, those calculations involve temporally persistent physical objects. In October 1929, these ideas led W. to think that language can directly represent only the world of physical objects.
95.     Hintikka, Jaakko, »Rules, Games and Experiences: Wittgenstein’s Discussion of Rule-Following in the Light of His Development», Revue Internationale de Philosophie 43 (1989): 279–297.
When W. rejected phenomenological languages in 1929, he could not accommodate rules (especially rules of language) in his new outlook. He had believed that a rule could be gathered from one single experience of using it correctly. This phenomenological conception is what he later criticized in denying that rule-following is a matter of having certain experiences. What at first look like skeptical arguments in W. concerning rule-following are actually a reminder of the conceptual fact that epistemic concepts are not applicable in the primary games of rule-following.

          Reprint of item 96.
In the Tractatus, the simple objects referred to by W. are phenomenological. After his return to philosophy in 1929, W. gave up phenomenological objects as references of names, but still maintained a phenomenological ontology. The contrast between physicalistic and phenomenological discourse depends on the principle of identification relied on.

Revised and expanded version of item 97. Because of W.’s impatience as expositor, the problem background of his philosophical ideas is virtually impossible to gather from his so far published writings. So far, attempts to publish a complete edition of the W. papers, which would have remedied this exegetical situation, have been failures.

W.’s picture theory of language involves several different assumptions:
(i) Elementary propositions are »pictures», isomorphic replicas, of the corres-ponding states of affairs. (ii) The totality of possible combinations of simple objects matches the totality of elementary propositions. (iii) A name shares a logical form with its object. (iv) Elementary propositions are mutually independent. (v) Complex propositions are pictures in the same sense as elementary propositions. (vi) The logical forms of propositions can be represented by their syntactical forms. Later W. rejected (ii), (iv), and (vi), but not the general idea of propositions as pictures.

W.’s evolving conception of time is traced chronologically through his writings, and its importance in his philosophy of language and his ontology is assessed. A distinction is made between »memory time», which is essentially solipsistic and can only distinguish earlier from later, and »information time», which is defined by physical measurement. In the Tractatus, W. held memory time to be primary, but changed his mind later in favour of information time as he adopted a physicalistic conception of language.

Ostensive definition plays an important role in W.’s middle period, being a descendant of the idea of showing in the Tractatus. But the allegedly direct naming relations which ostensive definitions can establish were in W.’s later philosophy constituted by language games, which can be learned only by training and not by ostension. This led W. to de-emphasize rules and criteria in his later philosophy.

The primary language of the Tractatus is a phenomenological language, and the objects discussed in the work are phenomenal. This also throws light on W.’s early views on ethics and aesthetics, which are argued to be similar to those of the Bloomsbury group and especially of G. E. Moore.

An interpretation of W.’s philosophical life work in which the Tractatus is seen as a treatise on phenomenological language inspired by the epistemology defended by Russell in his writings around 1913–1914, and W.’s later work from 1929 onwards is seen as the abandonment of the Tractatus view in favour of a physicalistic language and the theory of language games as guarantors of a relationship between language and reality. W.’s philosophy is seen as weakened by his life-long commitment to the ineffability of semantics.

W.’s notebooks show that on 22 October 1929, he rejected phenomenological languages for physicalistic ones. This presented him immediately with new philo-sophical problems, some of which he tried to solve with the so-called »private language argument» and with his concept of the language game.

In this study the character of the perception and measurement in physics is discussed in relation to W.’s idea of language game; Husserl’s intentional acts and noemas; Reenpää’s response-stimulus schema; and Putnam’s metaphysical and inner realism. In Chapter One the understanding of the connection between language and the world included in W.’s Tractatus is analyzed, followed by a discussion of how the relation in question is seen in W.’s idea of language game. Next, Husserl’s comprehension of intentionality is presented. The central idea of this is to show how Husserl understands perception, and his concept of noema. At the end of Chapter One the relation between noema and language game is discussed. It is suggested and argued that it is possible to consider noema as a »formation» in which language games and the rules included in them are effected. [AA]

A critique of the book containing item 122a. Jaakko Hintikka claims that his interpretation of language games as a bridge between language and reality is new and revolutionary, and so is his view of the Philosophical Investigations as supplementing the Tractatus. However, E. K. Specht and Anthony Kenny defended these views with more subtlety long ago.

Reply to Trevor Pateman, »What Is a Language?», Language & Communication 3 (1983): 101–127. The author examines critically Pateman’s proposed counterexamples to W.’s private language argument. Since Pateman wishes to undermine W.’s argument by examples taken from outside the synchronic-grammatical study of natural languages, he tacitly admits that the argument applies to this kind of study.

Gordon Baker and P. M. S. Hacker are correct in their W.ian criticisms of Platonist and psychologist linguistics, but are excessively suspicious of linguistics and cognitive science in general. W.’s »private language argument» demonstrates the unviability of Chomsky’s views on natural languages.

It is suggested that the house W. designed for his sister Margaret is an example of the kind of essentialist, loosely Aristotelian ideology that dominated architectural thinking in the beginning of the twentieth century. This interpretation of the house is illustrated by a commentary on various remarks from Culture and Value.

The language game of recognizing the feeling of certainty in ourselves, and generalizing it to a part of the reality of other human beings, is completely different from the language game of taking the behaviour of others to imply that they experience certain feelings. In fact, it is doubtful whether the former can be called a language game at all.

A study of W.’s aesthetics in light of his »Lectures on Aesthetics» and other related remarks. W.’s aesthetics is a consistent part of his more general philosophical thinking, especially his emphasis on socially shared rules and his early view that values are transcendental. Claims by Harold Osborne and other aestheticians to the effect that W. had only a primitive aesthetic sensibility, or none at all, are unfounded.

The Tractatus can most fruitfully be approached as a Kantian treatise in which W. seeks to extend Kant’s analysis of the transcendental conditions of know-ledge into the realm of language. W.’s version of Kant’s transcendental deduction involves the mental act of projecting propositions to reality.
145.   Kare, Kauko, »Sana ja ajatus», Suomalainen Suomi 18 (1950): 530–536.
Reply to item 148. The author attacks logical empiricism in a vituperative manner as philistinic and hostile towards humanistic understanding. He ridicules W.’s Tractatus definition of philosophy as an activity in light of its purported followers’ complete devotion to formalisms and theories.

Reply to item 160. Krohn ignores the background of logical empiricism as an expression of a certain philosophical temperament not limited to it. Attacks on specific linguistic formulations of empiricism, such as those made by Joad, are bound to miss their target. Krohn also sets up a false dichotomy in insisting that philosophers must choose between practicing logical empiricism and doing traditional metaphysics.

Some of W.’s views on religious language mirror those of Johan Bilberg, a Swedish seventeenth-century theologian. Both W. and Bilberg hold views about the relevance of evidence for religious language games which are problematic in not explaining how they propose to avoid fideism.

W.’s notion of language games would be well suited for research on language for specific purposes (LSP) oriented towards practical applications. Many languages exist for specific purposes and are related to other forms of language use, and it is possible that LSP’s differences from ordinary language could be explained through the concept of language games.

The Tractatus is commonly viewed as defending a Kantian, transcendental view of the nature of logic. The author draws attention to the fact that many elements of this view are already present in writings of Russell dating from the years before W. began work on the Tractatus.

          18 p.: illus.; ISBN 951-751-000-4.
W.’s definition of natural numbers as »exponents of operations» is investigated and formalized. Different systems of »numbers» are obtained; their structure depends on how large the underlying set of objects of operations is considered to be. Metamathematical questions related to the definition of the natural number system are discussed. The investigation, although quite simple technically, gives a formalism which is intuitively more enlightening than the traditional one. [AA]
157.   Krohn, Sven, Der logische Empirismus: eine kritische Untersuchung (Turku: Turun yliopisto, 1949–1950).
          2 vols (276, 307 p.).
A highly critical examination – from a neo-Platonist viewpoint – of the logical empiricism of the Vienna Circle. Many references, especially in the first volume, to the Tractatus, which is interpreted as an apotheosis of positivism.
158.   Krohn, Sven, »Loogisen empirismin verbalistinen vaihe», Valvoja 69 (1949): 192–199.
The recent attempts to modify the initially strong verification thesis of logical empiricism so that it would include science, but exclude metaphysics and ethics, have ended in disaster. The aim of Carnap and others to develop special metalanguages, which would be helpful in this task, have merely overemphasized the role of linguistic investigations in philosophy at the expense of investigations into reality.
159.   Krohn, Sven, »Monaadit ja ’kielet’», Valvoja 70 (1950): 115–121.
W.’s logical atomism in the Tractatus mirrors Leibniz’s doctrine of windowless monads, especially as regards the later physicalistic version of W.’s doctrine developed by Carnap. It completely fails to explain or accommodate the irredu-cibly intersubjective nature of language.
160.   Krohn, Sven, »C. E. M. Joad ja looginen empirismi», Suomalainen Suomi 18 (1950): 408–414.
A discussion of C. E. M. Joad’s book A Critique of Logical Positivism (1950). Joad is correct to describe logical empiricism as a combination of hubristic worship of science, moral nihilism and extreme scepticism.
161.   Krohn, Sven, »Loogisesta empirismistä: vastaus arvosteluun», Suomalainen Suomi 18 (1950): 548–552.
Reply to item 81. Pace Hintikka, Krohn’s dissertation does not downplay the conceptual nature attributed to philosophy by W. and the logical empiricists. Hintikka’s attempt to defend the system of the Tractatus by regretting the absence of metalanguages in it is a failure, as metalanguages are an evasive attempt to dispose of genuine philosophical difficulties.

Building on item 296, the author suggests that religious language gets its meaning from religious practices and can be considered as the object of theology. Constructive theology seeks to arbitrate between religious and non-religious languages when one of these tries to occupy a certain social context to the exclusion of the other.

          224 p.: illus.; ISBN 951-9498-15-X.
The author formulates and defends a W.ian approach to theology inspired by the writings of Norman Malcolm, Peter Winch and D. Z. Phillips. There are two main traditions in the philosophy of religion: one deals with the question of the meaning of religious language, while the other is interested in the question of the truth of such language. W. and his followers represent the former tradition, while the latter one is exemplified by the Swedish theologian Anders Jeffner. The W.ian approach is shown to be more successful than Jeffner’s approach in doing justice to the nature of religious tradition and the rootedness of religious practices in human societies.

164.   Kurtén, Tage, »Glebe-Møller, Wittgenstein och ’Helligånden’», Dansk teologisk tidsskrift 57 (1997): 116–132.
Examines the recent work of the Danish philosopher and theologian Jens Glebe-Møller, whose thinking is seen to have undergone a shift from an Enlightenment-inspired (»modern») to a more W.-inspired (»postmodern») way of dealing with the fundamental questions of theology. Glebe-Møller is seen to interpret W. in a fashion that makes W. too congenial to the tradition of the Enlightenment. He is liable to view W.’s philosophical remarks on religion as a theory, which they are not. He thereby misses possibilities inherent in W.ian philosophy which could provide arguments for a scientific, contextual theology. [Modified AA]
165.   Kuusela, Oskari, »Wittgensteinin kieliopillinen filosofia», niin & näin 5 (1998), 3: 18–25.
According to the later W., philosophical problems are essentially problems about the use of language. He calls his philosophical viewpoint a grammatical one. It is not a substantive philosophical doctrine, but a method – a way of approa-ching philosophical questions and problems. W.’s philosophical viewpoint and his conception of language are deeply intertwined.

The author aims to sketch an interpretation of the relation of W.’s later philosophy to metaphysical philosophy, exemplified by his Tractatus. He attempts to show, through a discussion of what W. says is problematic in the Tractatus’ approach to philosophy and of W.’s later understanding of a philosophical use of language as presenting comparisons, how W.’s later philosophy can be understood to break away from metaphysical philosophy.

An examination of W.’s relation to Leibniz’s dream of a characteristica universalis. The Tractatus can be seen as one attempt at constructing a universal language, while W.’s later work renders problematic the very idea of such a language. This has to do with W.’s doubts about whether it makes sense to say that the analysis of a given linguistic expression is ever complete.
168.   Kuusela, Oskari, »Wittgenstein ja transsendentaalifilosofia», niin & näin 8 (2001), 1: 53–65.
Reply to item 214. W.’s philosophical aims are essentially contrary to those of transcendental philosophy, and only a straw-man version of him can be attached to the transcendentalist tradition.

Associating W.’s philosophy with the Kantian project of critical philosophy is problematic. W. does not aim to give philosophical foundations to language, but to show that the idea of such foundations is incoherent.

Translation by Kimmo Korhonen of »Family Resemblances and Generalization Concerning the Arts» (1965). The use of W.ian methods by Paul Ziff and Morris Weitz in arguing that art can best be defined as a family resemblance concept is made problematic by difficulties in W.’s notion of family resemblances.
179.   Maury, André, The Concepts of Sinn and Gegenstand in Wittgenstein’s Tractatus (Amsterdam: North-Holland, 1977).
          176 p.; ISBN 951-95053-8-5.
The author argues that the Tractatus’ notion of propositional sense contains an irreducible modal element. An interpretation of W.’s early notion of »bipolarity» is given. W.’s early views on sense and modality are contrasted with Frege’s and Russell’s views. The author defends the view that the Tractatus objects include predicates, backing up his argument by reference to unpublished writings of W.’s.

In his discussion of G. E. Moore in On Certainty, W. holds that there are a number of empirical propositions which are certain, but which cannot be assessed on the axis »known»/»not known» at all; they are in fact too certain to be assessed in that way. If this view of W.’s is accepted, the area where traditional scepticism can move is significantly diminished, for it detaches the sceptic’s claim that a given proposition cannot be known from the conclusion that the proposition in question is uncertain.

The notion of »limit of language» in the Tractatus is analyzed in connection with the nature of logic and the relation between language and reality.

183.   Maury, André, »Reality and Logical Form», Synthese 56 (1983): 171–180.
W.’s demand that the proposition display the logical form of reality (Tractatus § 2.18) raises a question whether this condition of truth can be shown to be fulfilled by any proposition. This is impossible, but W. nevertheless holds that any proposition (certainly) »shows» the logical form of reality. It follows from this that the question whether a predicate answers to the logical form of reality is decidable a priori.
184.   Maury, André, »Logical Form», in Ghita Holmström and Andrew J. I. Jones (eds.), Action, Logic and Social Theory: Dedicated to Ingmar Pörn on the Occasion of His 50th Birthday (Helsinki: Philosophical Society of Finland, 1985): 110–132.
In the Tractatus, logical form is a condition of factual truth. Yet the question whether a proposition fulfills this condition of truth is undecidable. So factual truth is, in the end, undecidable. This problem is discussed with reference to W.’s view of meaning as use, and to realism and antirealism as regards linguistic rules. It turns out that none of the options discussed give a satisfactory solution of the problem. It is also shown that a semantics in terms of »truth-conditions» collapses into a semantics in terms of rules.

W.’s discussion of the visual field in the Philosophical Remarks has been ignored, perhaps due to his later attack on the role of empirical experience in philosophy. The discussion is nevertheless interesting with its suggestion that the geometry of visual experiences is not Euclidean, but indeterminate.

The alienation of people from their ordinary language, which according to W. is the main source of philosophical problems, is a reflection of their alienation from the modern industrial society they live in. The philosophy of W. can be seen as a fundamentally political attempt to reveal contradictions between people’s intentions and their acts, which contradictions the bourgeois workaday world is liable to disguise.

A reading of W.’s private language argument building on the insights of Rush Rhees, Cora Diamond and Lars Hertzberg. According to W., the mastery of a natural language means much more than the ability to put words together in grammatically correct sentences. To master a language means participating in a social community where linguistic expressions are an essential part of human beings’ everyday dealings with each other.
190.   Mäntysalo, Raine, »Text and Con-Text: The Dialogue of Environmental Meanings», Nordia Geographical Publications 25 (1996), 2: 41–48.
Drawing from communication theory and W.’s later philosophy, this article discusses about the nature of language, meaning, information, and communication – especially via the medium of built environment. Since all behaviour is taken here as communication, all types of environmental activities should also be considered as forms of communication via the environment – not just designing and building. The question is whether the designers and builders are willing and able to initiate environmental communication among users via those changes they make to the physical environment. Through professional education and socialization the former have become habituated to give meanings to their activities in reference to their subcultural professional contexts differentiated from the users’. Here the concept of dialogue is offered as a tool to bridge this difference; to structure shared environmental meanings on the basis of prior intersubjective pre-understanding. [AA]

Pragmatics – the study of the influence of contexts on sentence meaning – provides a key to W.’s controversial notion of »forms of life». A form of life is defined by the author as the sum of all the pragmatic background assumptions which make possible the use of a given language. Various methodologies are proposed for the location and study of these assumptions.

Architecture is one of man’s non-verbal languages. The search for meaning of built form can be compared with W.’s search for meaning in verbal language. Functionalism has some of the characteristics of W.’s picture theory: there is one meaning for every expression, or form is subordinated to function. A language like this means limiting the world in a way which reduces life. The later W. of Philosophical Investigations found out how the »higher», which is indescribable, can be shown in the language games. In the same way it is possible to recreate a language of built form, which recognizes the fact that meaning comes into being through practice – not only architects’ practice but also the public’s use of the built environment. Architects’ practice must be renewed in such a way as to take as its starting point the age-old collective meanings – conventions – of architecture. A language governed by such rules has creative power. [AA]

Shortly after returning to philosophy in 1929, W. identified value with the supernatural. This identification may be Jewish in that the inexpressible centre he claimed for man’s life-world mirrors the anxiety at expressing the great inexpressible, the Jewish God. In notes made during W.’s 1937 stay in Norway, he expresses religious terror and loneliness that may be due to his feeling of God being locked out of his new way of doing philosophy.

The paper seeks to illustrate similarities in Jaspers and W.’s view of man and of philosophy. Both philosophers are constantly aware of the importance of reaching for transcendence. Language is a boundary and a pointer to something beyond. Man as a communicating, acting and existentially responsible being is central to both thinkers.

This psychohistorical book examines the relationship of various European philosophers to fascism; in the chapter on W., the author interprets some features in his writings as signs of a partly subconscious recoil from the horrors of Nazism.
208.   Pasanen, Kimmo, »Wittgensteinin estetiikasta», Taide 29 (1989), 3: 8–11.
Beginning from the paradox that while W. was deeply interested in all forms of art, he did not write extensively on aesthetics, the author describes his Lectures and Conversations on Aesthetics, Psychology and Religious Belief, his one substantial work on the subject, compiled from lecture notes. These consist of critical comments on mistaken beliefs prevalent in the current approach to aesthetic
research, rather than attempts to create a systematic theory of aesthetics. The author suggests the application of W.’s remarks to the field of sculpture in particular, and their continuing relevance to aesthetic methodology. [AA]

It is trivially true that solipsism, the view that »the world is my world» and that whatever there is is ontologically dependent on my thought or language, cannot be conclusively refuted. The issue of solipsism is, however, an important one. The paper considers this issue mainly from the point of view of W.’s remarks on solipsism in the Tractatus and in his early Notebooks. It is argued that we should not accept W.’s idea that solipsism eventually coincides with »pure realism». A position labeled »pragmatic realism» is briefly sketched in order to avoid both solipsism and what the author calls »credo realism». The author tries to show that the issue of solipsism versus realism should not simply be dismissed and that it should be approached from a pragmatist perspective. [AA]

          Reprint of item 212 with minor changes.
A review article on Jaakko Hintikka’s work on W., on the occasion of the publication of item 102. Hintikka views what he terms the »universal» and »calculus» conceptions of language as irreconcilable; he attributes the former to W. and the latter to himself, among others. However, both the dichotomy and W.’s place in it are problematic.
213.   Pihlström, Sami, »Two Kinds of Methodological Solipsism», Sats 1 (2000), 2: 73–90.
The paper deals with an analogy between two philosophical positions: (1) the kind of methodological solipsism associated with Carnapian logical positivism and, more generally, with the entire post-Cartesian tradition in epistemology and in the philosophy of mind and language, and (2) the more socially oriented, late-W.ian philosophy of language, which constitutes the background of several influential philosophical treatments of the conditions of understanding human cultures and social forms of life. In the latter, the solipsistic »I», the locus of all experience and meaning, is replaced by a social subject, »we», but the position remains methodologically solipsistic, since experiences and meanings are still created from a first person point of view, on the basis of what is »given» to the (social) subject. The solipsism issue turns out to be fundamentally relevant to some basic concerns in the philosophy of science and of the social sciences, because even pragmatic and constructivist currents based on W.’s later work employ solipsistic methodological assumptions.

W.’s discussion of private language is vitiated by behavioristic tendencies. The speech community, as he describes it, is »divided into identity-preserving speaker individuals who participate in nicely identifiable and separate language games». This prevents W. from appreciating the crucial role of aconceptual and asubjective experience in philosophical thinking.

In his writings and lectures on religious belief, W. defends the view that religious beliefs, which get their meaning and justification from the traditions of cultures, practices and institutions, do not rest on a faulty conception of reality that can be criticized by reference to objective reality. Religious beliefs involve a commitment one has to accept as given in order to participate in the religious practices of one’s community.

In his Remarks on Frazer’s Golden Bough, W. emphasizes that we can hope to understand the ritual and religious practices of alien cultures when the context of the whole way of living of these cultures is taken into account. Whether a religious practice is an instrumentalist one or an emotive one can only be decided on a case-by-case basis.

A sketch of a study of W.’s thinking in the Tractatus and the Prototractatus, which are viewed as a Kantian investigation into the transcendental preconditions of perception and knowledge. W.’s unorthodox definition of the world as everything that is the case has affinities with process-oriented thinking in the
Hegelian tradition. The discrepancies in the ordering of the propositions between the Tractatus and Prototractatus may help us get a clearer picture of W.’s intentions. For instance, the inconspicuous presence of Tractatus § 7 in the middle of the Prototractatus may mean that its importance to W.’s metaphysics has been exaggerated.

          193 p.; ISBN 951-95055-8-X.
A study of philosophical problems arising from the understanding of human practices and beliefs in alien societies. Inspired by W. and by thinkers influenced by him, especially Peter Winch, its purpose is to show that the philosophical difficulties pertaining to the concept of understanding here are variations of difficulties within any attempt to understand human beliefs and behaviour. An understanding of alien beliefs and customs is connected with the understanding of customs and beliefs not alien; this kind of study is, by its very nature, diffe-rent from an investigation within natural science.

The concept »sense» is used in the Tractatus in multiple ways, including an eva-luative one. However, value predicates such as »beautiful» and »well» are categorized as nonsense. It is possible to differentiate between two kinds of nonsense in the Tractatus: (1) that which can be shown, and (2) that which is without any cognitive function. Mystical showing is demystified in W.’s later philosophy. [Modified AA]

The tension between a doctrinal and a purely methodological conception of philosophy in the Tractatus is illuminated by an examination of the role of problems and questions in the book.

In the Tractatus, W. considers projection as representation of the depicted by its depiction. The use of projection as a method of investigation is liable to lead to abstract studies of the mapping of structures onto each other. Such studies are relevant for humanities as well as for sciences.

Finnish translation by Päivi Heininen of »Rules of Qualitative Research» (1989). Qualitative sociology too easily succumbs to a »Romantic» impulse. In a sociological context, the Romantic seeks to understand raw »experience,» usually by the use of unstructured interviews. Such work can lack analytic rigour, failing to distinguish the sociologist from the journalist. Following W. and Garfinkel, the approach adopted here emphasizes the forms of representation and contexts which inform practical reasoning. It recommends a non-Romantic sociology – an aspiration curiously shared by Durkheim – and suggests some ways to pursue it. [AA]

It has been argued that Erik Stenius’s version of W.’s picture theory of sentence meaning leads to Bradley’s regress. If sentences are understood as concatenations of words, there seems always to be one more element in the propositional sign than there is in the fact pictured. The author argues that Stenius’s account of meaning in terms of isomorphism avoids the regress.

In this book of social philosophy inspired by Herbert Marcuse and Theodor Adorno, both the earlier and later philosophies of W. are frequently criticized as escapist, narcissistic, authoritarian, militaristic and masochistic.

W. is approached as an apocalyptic thinker developing a Spenglerian philosophy of history. The facts of his life and his various remarks on philosophy of culture convey a picture of his helplessness and nausea in the face of modern Western industrial society. Special attention is paid to W.’s homoerotic inclinations and their possible influences on his personality.

This book interprets the semantic and metaphysical aspects of the Tractatus by examining the most significant steps in it, starting from questions of a historical or genetic nature. The picture theory, which the author exemplifies with statements drawn from ordinary language, constitutes the central theme. It revolves around the thesis that in the Tractatus predicates are genuine components of reality on a level with objects. In the final chapter, W.’s philosophy is held to be significantly closer to Kantian metaphysics than to contemporary Anglo-Saxon philosophy.

          Revised and expanded version of item 281.
An examination of W.’s notion of »aesthetic reactions» shows how his aesthetics cannot be separated from the main concerns of his philosophy. The notion enables us to describe the grammar of aesthetic judgements in a way that recognizes important points made in classical aesthetics, for instance by Kant, but in a way that is consonant with W.’s own views of language and psychological concepts.
282.   Säätelä, Simo, Aesthetics as Grammar: Wittgenstein and Post-Analytic Philosophy of Art (Uppsala: University of Uppsala, Department of Aesthetics, 1998).
          xxi, 298 p.
Attempts to assess the significance of W.’s later thought for philosophical
aesthetics, both by showing its direct relevance and by criticizing certain prevalent misunderstandings of it. Chapter 1 deals with the application to philosophical aesthetics of the idea that philosophy is concerned with a grammatical investigation, which means clarification of concepts as well as therapeutical analysis of various philosophical diseases. This conception is developed with reference to Ben Tilghman’s and Stanley Cavell’s work, and it is contrasted to the prevai-ling understanding of W. within analytic aesthetics. In the following chapters this approach is brought to bear on some central problems in philosophical aesthe-tics. Chapter 2 discusses and criticizes Arthur Danto’s idea that a theory-dependent interpretation would be required for a thing to be »transfigured» into a work of art. W.’s remarks on aspect perception will be used to counter these claims and help us get a clearer view of the problems at issue. Chapter 3 shows how W.’s appeal to »aesthetic reactions» can offer an alternative to such an interpretive view of understanding. The first part deals with the relation of the notion of aesthetic reactions to that of »primitive reactions», the appeal to which has a central but frequently misunderstood role in W.’s later philosophy. The second part is devoted to showing how aesthetic reactions are involved in our traffic with art. Chapter 4 explores the close connection between understanding art and understanding human beings, which is highlighted through the idea of an »attitude» (Einstellung). Understanding this kind of attitude proves to be of utmost importance if we want to describe how the nature of our involvement with works of art is similar to our relations to persons. Thus chapters 3 and 4 attempt to show that the problem of understanding is practical in its nature, having to do with how we can come to react to objects as works of art and how they can come to play an important role in our lives and be objects of attitudes typical of our relation to art.

The notion of »attitude» in connection with art does not have to be connected with psychologistic attitude theories. Rather, following the suggestion of B. R. Tilghman, an attitude to a work of art can be seen as analogous to an attitude towards one’s fellow human beings, which W. describes as the attitude that they have souls, as opposed to an opinion to that effect. To see something as a work of art means to see it as filled with a certain meaning, the way we can see someone’s gestures and expressions as humanly meaningful.

W.’s views on ethics are shot through with vertical and hierarchical images familiar from the Judaeo-Christian tradition. For him, ethical value is
something supernatural and transcendental, and ethical judgements are absolute. The author contrasts W.’s »sublime» conception of ethics with a »banal» one which seeks to neutralize and destroy the vertical imagery.

Discusses the possibility that there might be a distinctive W.ian theology along the lines of Platonic, Aristotelian, idealistic and other such theologies. Such a theology would not be a separate language game in the language, as some have suggested, but would have to emphasize W.’s view that the function of religious language is a grammatical one and not a fact-stating one.

For W., natural attitudes represent a »transcendental signified» in grounding ordinary human discourse and activity.

Although the thinking of W. has significant similarities with postmodern philosophers such as Derrida, the existing differences outweigh these. For Derrida, natural attitudes are always something metaphysical and undesirable, while for W., they form a legitimate and indispensable part of human life. W.’s defence of natural attitudes in philosophy mirrors Merleau-Ponty’s criticism of Husserl’s attack on them.
302.   Uschanov, Tommi, »Wittgensteinin Tractatus logiikan kritiikkinä», niin & näin 5 (1998), 3: 14–17.
Standard interpretations of W.’s Tractatus as an attempt to criticize Frege’s and Russell’s logicist programme constructively are mistaken. The anti-metaphysical »correct method of philosophy» discussed in Tractatus § 6.53 is not the method followed in the book itself, and a fortiori it is not the method W. recommends to his readers. Following James Conant, the Tractatus should rather be seen as a partly satirical reductio ad absurdum of Frege’s and Russell’s metaphilosophical aspirations. In this sense it is a closer forerunner of W.’s later writings than is usually thought.

Reply to items 214 and 215. Pihlström’s unwillingness to discuss W. in a scholarly manner and as a historical figure is incomprehensible in view of his willingness to bandy the name of W. about. The worries expressed by Pihlström about the possibility of normative philosophy evaporate when it is seen that philosophy neither suppresses nor facilitates normativity, which is the responsibility of all human beings and not just philosophers.

A discussion of the anthropologist Ernest Gellner’s attacks on W. and the ordinary-language tradition in analytic philosophy, with special reference to Gellner’s books Words and Things (1959) and Language and Solitude (1998). Gellner’s reading of W. as an extreme irrationalist and cultural relativist is a crude caricature with only tenuous links to reality. However, it has exercised an enormous and often tacit influence on the reception of W.’s thought in various intellectual traditions hostile towards him.

Reply to item 109. Contrary to the impression Hintikka would like to give, a deep consensus exists among specialist scholars to the effect that Hintikka’s rea-ding of W. is egregiously untenable in all of its main contentions. The accusation of special pleading, which Hintikka has levelled at scholars such as Rhees and Anscombe, fits Hintikka’s own work considerably better.
309.   Valpola, Veli, »Keskustelua loogisen empirismin kritiikistä ja vähän muustakin», Suomalainen Suomi 19 (1951): 35–37.
Reply to item 145. Kare confuses logical empiricism with formal logic, and the impression he gives that the latter is in decline is completely false. The devotion of the logical empiricists to logical questions is an activity in the sense of the word used by W. in the Tractatus. Following Descartes, Leibniz and W., philosophy should stick to logical clarification; the more social aspects of language should be studied by sociologists, not philosophers.
310.   Valpola, Veli, »Ludwig Wittgenstein – ’filosofianfilosofi’», Helsingin Sanomat, 1 February 1952.
Apparently the first article in Finnish to be devoted entirely to W. The author gives a brief account of W.’s life and personality on the basis of information then available, and also discusses some main themes of the Tractatus.

Examines the fragmentary manuscript sources for W.’s Remarks on the Foundations of Mathematics, arguing that Paul Bernays’s notorious 1959 attack on the book stemmed at least partly from his regarding it as a scholarly monograph on mathematics, instead of a diffuse collection of philosophical remarks intended to complement the Philosophical Investigations.

315.   Wahlström, Bertel, »The Indefinability of Religion», Temenos 17 (1981): 101–115.
Using the aesthetician Morris Weitz’s notion of »open concepts», which builds on W.’s anti-essentialist conception of word meaning, the author argues that »religion» is an open concept and as such it does not permit of an exhaustive, all-encompassing definition. All the proposed definitions of the word seem to be fatally susceptible to counterexamples.
316.   Wahlström, Bertel, »The Relativity of Meaning», Religious Studies 22 (1986): 205–217.
Attacks John Skorupski’s critique of Peter Winch and other W.ian philosophers of social science in »The Meaning of Another Culture’s Beliefs» (1978). Skorupski’s reading of these philosophers as relativists is based on misunderstandings and conceptual confusions.

          205 p.; ISBN 951-9498-17-6.
Seeks to elucidate the concept of religion through an analysis of the connection between religious action and other religious phenomena. Taking his main inspiration from W. and philosophers inspired by him, the author argues that religion is always practiced within the bounds of some human tradition or other, and that scholarship wishing to approach religion from a tradition-neutral stance, whether sympathetic or hostile, is therefore doomed to failure.

A discussion of secularization and the erasure of religious outlooks in modern industrial society, partly from the standpoint of W.’s philosophy of religion.

Discusses the similarities and differences between W. and the critical theory of the Frankfurt school. It is noted that both W. and critical theorists are deeply suspicious of modern industrial society.

          ii, ii, 202, xiv p.
Critical theory and W.’s later philosophy are the main reference points of this book, which is an examination of a number of competing conceptions of a »first philosophy», and an effort to answer the question of what philosophy’s relation to its times should be.

The various attempts to find a middle ground between transcendental and non-transcendental readings of W.’s discussion of private language are liable to collapse into one or the other.
324.   Wallgren, Thomas, »Hintikka’s Later Wittgenstein: Some Problems», Sats 2 (2001), 2: 98–119.
Jaakko Hintikka believes that all philosophers must subscribe either to the view of language as a universal medium or to the view of language as calculus. Hintikka himself defends the calculus view of language, which he considers the minority view in twentieth-century philosophy. His critique of the ineffability view is motivated by his notion that it undermines the idea of analytical philo-sophy as a systematic, problem-solving endeavour, paving the way for irresponsible relativism. Hintikka believes that W., throughout his career, maintained that semantics is ineffable, but the author argues that Hintikka is mistaken in this. As it would be implausible to attribute the competing calculus view to W., this finding implies that Hintikka’s suggested »grand distinction» between the two views does not have the kind of generality he attributes to it. Generalizing on the same finding, the author goes on to argue that Hintikka gets W. wrong in the same way as some of the anti-constructive philosophers he criticizes, including Richard Rorty. Like Rorty, Hintikka reads the later W.’s philosophy of language as destructive for philosophy’s commitment to reason. The author suggests that such readings of W. fail to give an adequate account of how W. transforms, but does not destroy or delegitimize, that very commitment. [Modified AA]

The author attempts to stake off a middle ground in the controversy between P. M. S. Hacker and Cora Diamond over the role of nonsense in the Tractatus. He suggests that Hacker’s and Diamond’s critiques of each other are both equally compelling, and that the two philosophers share the mistake of approaching W.’s notion of nonsense as unambiguous, which it is not.

Finnish translation by Harald Arnkil of »The Play of Use and the Use of Play: An Interpretation of Wittgenstein’s Comments on Architecture» (1986). The common bond between Adolf Loos, Karl Kraus and W. was that they shared a body of critical thought in the relationship of art to society in which traditiona-lism and modernism are brought together in a tough-minded and unique way. W.’s view was that architecture exists to glorify, and that an age in which there is nothing to glorify, such as the twentieth century, is bound to make genuine architecture impossible.

In the Tractatus, W. defined probability as a ratio of the measures of ranges of propositions. This may be seen as the final outcome of efforts to give a foundation in pure logic to the »classic» Laplacean definition of probability. In posthumously published writings from 1929–1932, W. explored the view that the measures of the ranges are hypothetical magnitudes chosen so as to give an optimal accord with statistical experience. Under this view, probability can be said to demarcate a border between chance and law. Unlike many later writers, W. did not regard the range-theory of probability as a basis for inductive logic or a theory of confirmation. The probability of a hypothesis on given evidence is a different kind of probability from that of the calculus and defies numerical measurement.

According to W., when language malfunctions and causes philosophical problems, there must be something wrong in the life of the community using the language. W.’s remarks in Culture and Value show how he rejected the scientific-technological civilization of industrialized societies, which he regarded as the decay of a culture, following Spengler’s philosophy of history.

The typescripts from which both parts of W.’s Philosophical Investigations were printed are now lost. Of the typescript for Part I there exists a second copy, but not so of the typescript for Part II. There is, however, a manuscript in W.’s hand which contains the whole of the printed Part II – and some additional material. A comparison of this manuscript with the printed text reveals some interesting discrepancies. They are noted in the paper. Moreover, a detailed comparison is made in a Postscript between the printed Preface of the Investigations and another, obviously earlier, version of it. Both versions are dated »Cambridge, January 1945» – but the printed one was probably not prepared until two years later. [AA]

As regards philosophers’ views of the relation between philosophy and science, two main lines existed in the twentieth century – one stemming from W., another from Russell. The Russellian view is that science seeks »knowledge» of »truth», while W. emphasizes the philosophical »understanding» of »meaning» (significance). The author suggests that knowledge (and Russellian philosophy), nourished by scientific progress, has hypertrophied at the expense of understanding (and W.ian philosophy).
