Anspielungsarten in literarischen Texten

Franz Josef Czernin


In his Brown Book Wittgenstein differentiates between a transitive and an intransitive use of the word meaning. Drawing from this distiction I will describe form- and subject- depending procedures in literary texts and their propositional as well as their non-propositional functions. I then will analyse a special kind of implicature (in the sense Paul Grice uses this term) that can be communicated through the subjects of a literary text and seems to me characteristic not only for literary texts, but also for works of art in general.
