Philosophical Investigations / Ludwig Wittgenstein

  • To imagine a language means to imagine a life-form.
  • We mind about the kind of expressions we use concerning these things; we do not understand them, however, but misinterpret them. When we do philosophy we are like savages, primitive people, who hear the expressions of civilized men, put a false interpretation on them, and then draw the queerest conclusions from it.
