Ludwig Wittgenstein

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Austrian philosopher and logician
Not only is there no guarantee of the temporal immortality of the human soul, that is to say of its eternal survival after death; but, in any case, this assumption completely fails to accomplish the purpose for which it has always been intended. Or is some riddle solved by my surviving forever? Is not this eternal life itself as much of a riddle as our present life?More Ludwig Wittgenstein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Philosophy aims at the logical clarification of thoughts. Philosophy is not a body of doctrine but an activity. A philosophical work consists essentially of elucidations.More Ludwig Wittgenstein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Think of words as instruments characterized by their use, and then think of the use of a hammer, the use of a chisel, the use of a square, of a glue pot, and of the glue.More Ludwig Wittgenstein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The world of the happy is quite different from that of the unhappy.More Ludwig Wittgenstein quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
You must always be puzzled by mental illness. The thing I would dread most, if I became mentally ill, would be your adopting a common sense attitude; that you could take it for granted that I was deluded.More Ludwig Wittgenstein quotes [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
