From Truth To Certainty

Albinas Plesnys

Abstract



In his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus Ludwig Wittgenstein proposed the ontological
model by means of which he formulated the conception of truth as the correspondence
of facts to reality. Subsequently, in his Philosophical Investigations, having
abandoned the exact ontological model, he also rejected the a priori conception of
truth and spoke about certainty as an internal trait of the language-game.
