From a change in situation to a philosophical investigation's aspect change: Wittgenstein 1941-1949

Peter Hacker and Joachim Schulte have raised two claims concerning Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations: (1) There is no published evidence, nor any indication in the Nachlass, that Part II was conceived either as a continuation of Part I or as a material to be worked into it ( as suggested by the editors.) (2) The end of Wittgenstein's Ms 130 first part (circa p.55) would be the landmark of Wittgenstein's work on the Philosophical Investigations' end. Against these two claims, on the ground of Mss 124, 130 and 169 studies, I will support the thesis that no end to the PI nor material can be found to satisfy these views, but that on the contrary, what the manuscripts display is the insertion of the Philosophical Investigations in a philosophical investigation, the Ms 130 remarks on the album and precipitate stand as an introduction to.
