Philosophical grammar : part I, The proposition, and its sense, part II, On logic and mathematics by Ludwig Wittgenstein ( Book )
6 editions published between 1969 and 2004 in German and English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Wittgenstein wrote this book during 1932-1934 - the period just before he began to dictate the Blue Book. In Part I he discusses the notions of "proposition," "sense," "language," "grammar"; what "saying something" is, what distinguishes signs form random marks or noises. Must we start with "primary" signs which need no explanation? In what sense have we a general concept of proposition or of language? The phrases "family of cases" and "family similarities," which the Investigations use, are here; and comparison brings out what is special in the later development. But although it is close to the Investigations at some points, and to the Philosophische Bemerkungen at others, the Philosophical Grammar is an independent work and discusses much that is not in either of them. It is Wittgenstein's fullest treatment of logic and mathematics in their connection with his later understanding of "proposition," "sign," and "system." In Part II he writes on logical inference and generality - criticizing views of Frege and Russell and earlier views of his own, developing his conception of "law of a series" and of "...and so on" - leading to his discussion of mathematics, which fills two fifths of the volume: the ideas of "foundations of mathematics," of cardinal numbers, of mathematical proof, and especially of inductive or recursive proofs (with reference to Skolem), which he treats to a depth and extent beyond anything he said of them elsewhere
Grammaire philosophique by Ludwig Wittgenstein ( Book )
2 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in French and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Empruntant au Tractatus logico-philosophicus son affirmation d'ouverture - " Le monde est tout ce qui a lieu " et sa problématique du langage et de la Iogique, la Grammaire philosophique développe la question de la relation entre le langage et la réalité dont "l'harmonie. comme toute autre chose métaphysique, est à trouver dans la grammaire du langage". La Grammaire philosophique concilie les deux orientations de la philosophie de Wittgenstein dans la dynamique de la représentation : le fondenment du langage comme celui des mathématiques est convention, et la philosophie, administrant le développement de ces jeux, de ces formes de vie, y apparaît forme suprême de l'imagination. Le concept de grammaire est l'instrument de l'activité philosophique par excellence

Wittgenstein's On certainty : there-- like our life by Rush Rhees ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Even Wittgenstein's admirers have been puzzled by his last work, On Certainty. Some even regard it as a lapse at the end of a distinguished career, or as a late epistemological interest that remained undeveloped. Rush Rhees, a close friend of Wittgenstein and a major interpreter of his work, shows how Wittgenstein's On Certainty concerns logic, language and reality - topics that occupied Wittgenstein from early in his career."
