Example text

What we really need is some evidence that WittgensĀ­ tein is prepared to think in terms of a symbol determining its semantic content, with perhaps a number of different symbols being able to determine one and the same such content. g. the stipulation that 'the chair' may occur as an argument in 'x is red', whereas '7' may not), Wittgenstein insists that the stipulation should only be concerned with symbols, not with their Bedeutungen. He then glosses this by emphasizing, in italics, that the stipulation should merely be a description of symbols, and should state nothing about what is signified.

For example, it could consistently be claimed that Wittgenstein does indeed find room for a notion of sense which applies to all types of expression including sentences, but that he chooses not to express this notion using the term 'Sinn'; reserving the latter to mark, among other things, the centrality of the sentence within language. Indeed, a claim of precisely this sort will be defended in the next chapter. 3 SINN It is obviously misleading to translate the TLP use of 'Sinn' as 'sense'. to be what a picture represents, rather than (as we might have expected given Frege's famous metaphor of Sinn as the 'mode of presentation' of Bedeutung)' the it represents what it does.

But for the present all that matters is that Wittgenstein appears to agree that a sign can be used with different ways of signifying. 2 Before continuing any further we need to notice an ambiguity in Wittgenstein's use of 'symbol', which threatens the clarity of the account presented so far. 322- immediately after we have that different symbols may involve different ways of signifying - we are told that the use of the same sign to signify two different objects can never indicate a common characteristic of the two, if we use that sign with different modes of signification (italics in original; I take it that Wittgenstein uses them to signal that he has shifted to quite a different sense of the phrase.
