Two Wittgensteins too many: Wittgenstein's foundationalism

Chapter


Abstract


  • Apparently, Polish logicians count differently from most people. This is because they

    operate with different munerical criteria. Disagreements between them and us about

    how many objects there are in a room will look not only insuperable but also

    unintelligible unless the differences between their system and ours are brought into

    the light. Similarly, if we are to put the debate about how many Wittgensteins there

    are on a proper footing, it will be important to establish the criterion according to

    which we are making our count.
