Philosophy made simple

entry picture

Wittgenstein posits:

''language pictures facts''

Then changes his mind and retracts. ''

It's more complex than I at first thought;

my tractatus has all come to nought,

and there's more, to them cats, on those mats''.

 

And If logic's the theory of proof

and inference a process to truth;

then it's impossible to state,

a premise, then negate,

the conclusion-

unless it's a spoof.
