Wittgenstein on philosophy

Wittgenstein’s world

This is possibly Wittgenstein’s most famous quotation, but I’m not sure that I agree with it. For instance, music and art are part of my world, but they are not part of my language. On the other hand, perhaps I don’t yet understand Wittgenstein well enough – not many people do. Even his philosophy professor, Bertrand Russell, found some of Wittgenstein’s ideas obscure.
