Item description for The Uses of Sense: Wittgenstein's Philosophy of Language by Charles Travis...
This work offers an account of Wittgenstein's view of language as part of the Philosophical Investigations. It applies the account to show the significance of private language and of other major themes in the Investigations, such as family resemblance and language games. Wittgenstein uses the idea of private language for a thought experiment. What is the experiment meant to test? The author suggests that it is two pictures of the having of semantic properties, by whatever items might do so, that are at stake.
