Wittgenstein’s Approach to the Language-Reasoning Use of Propositions

Alexandr Sobancev


The relation of language and reasoning which is of great significance for the problem
of propositions’ interpretation, concerns the problem of the expression of a thought.
We will argue certain points that refer to some lack of understanding of the relation
between language and reasoning. In the first section we will offer a way to receive
an understanding of the distinction between Wittgenstein’s account of sentences and
that of propositions in connection to Frege’s influence on him. In the second one we
will suggest a hypothesis for the use of propositions concerned the reasoning by
means of its expression.
