Sprachspiel and Ritual in L. Wittgenstein’s Philosophy
The occasion of this publication is my translation of l. Wittgenstein’s remarks on j. frazer’s anthropology.
this publication localizes these remarks in a broader field of Wittgenstein’s philosophy.The aprioric nature
both of the scientific view and of the language itself as the way the world is present is indicated. the
importance of the moment of the mystical „source“ of meaning is suggested. A mode of view oriented
toward this source as proposed by Wittgenstein is discussed as an alternative to the historical-genetic
treatment of phenomena in terms of their causae.
