Bild: From Satz to Begriff

Arley R. Moreno


Wittgenstein elaborates different conceptions of Bild, from the Tractatus to the On Certainty periods of his thought. In that paper I focus on just a few specific moments during which some movements of deepening the notion of Bild seem to have happened. I concentrate on three of these moments; the first one is the leaving of Wittgenstein from the Tractatus, the second corresponds to the period between 1929 and 1932, finally the Philosophical Investigations period. I attempt to show the conceptual contexts within which these changes happened as well as the philosophical function of that concept in each case.
