Ludwig Wittgenstein
Wittgenstein, Ludwig
(1889 - 1951)

The aim of the philosophical analysis is make clear indistinct concepts and obscure thoughts. Ludwig Wittgenstein expressed this idea of philosophy's duty in his work Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus as follows:

"Most propositions and questions which have been written about philosophical matters are not false, but senseless. We cannot, therefore, answer questions of this kind at all, but only state their senselessness. Most questions and propositions of the philosophers result from the fact that we do not understand the logic of our language.
(They are of the same kind as the question whether the Good is more or less identical than the Beautiful.)
And so it is not to be wondered at that the deepest problems are really not problems. (4.003)"

The philosophy is, according to Wittgenstein, "criticism of a language" (4.0031) - it is not a doctrine but activities whose object is a language and as a result making clear thoughts and propositions (4.112).

Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

"When I talk about a language (words, sentences, etc.), I must speak the language of every day. Is this language somehow too coarse and material for what we want to say? Then how is another one be constructed? - And how strange, that we should be able to do anything at all with the one we have!"
(Ludwig Wittgenstein)
