Quote for Thought (3)

"That the world is my world appears in the fact that the boundaries of language (the only language I understand) indicate the boundaries of my world."

(Ludwig Wittgenstein 1889-1951)


Tony said... you think Ludwig's buddies called him "Witty" when he was a kid?

Hmm . . . not sure what "Witty" translates to in German, so not sure if that would be a compliment or not!

I'm hoping to find him witty, as I am planning to read his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus this fall as part of my studies.

Wish me luck!
