Umfasst Wittgensteins früher Bildbegriff das literarische Bild (bildliches Sprechen)?

Christian Erbacher


paper discusses how Wittgenstein’s early concept of picture with its
mathematico-graphical double-character relates to pictorial speech. It is
investigated (a) whether there is a pictorial speech in the Logisch-philosophische
Abhandlung (LPA) that can be distinguished from a theoretical speech, (b) how
Wittgenstein uses literary pictures in LPA and finally (c) in how far the results
suggest that the concept of picture presented in LPA covers literary pictures and
might contribute to our understanding of pictorial speech.
