Language-Use as a Grammatical Construction of the World

Paul Barroso

Abstract



The aim of this paper is to take into account possible answers to the following
questions raised by the reading of Wittgenstein’s remarks on the philosophy of
psychology: how is the connection between public signs (e.g. ordinary words) and
mental images established? In other words: why does a mental image have a
certain meaning or refer to a given content? This topic supposes the linguistic
expression and rests mostly on the general relation between subjectivity and
privacy of experience and the public nature of language.
