Ludwig Wittgenstein selbst hielt seine Überlegungen zur Mathematik für seinen bedeutendsten Beitrag zur Philosophie. So beabsichtigte er zunächst, dem Thema einen zentralen Teil seiner Philosophischen Untersuchungen zu widmen. Tatsächlich wird kaum irgendwo sonst in Wittgensteins Werk so deutlich, wie radikal die Konsequenzen seines Denkens eigentlich sind. Vermutlich deshalb haben Wittgensteins Bemerkungen zur Mathematik unter all seinen Schriften auch den größten Widerstand provoziert: Seine Bemerkungen zu den Gödel’schen Unvollständigkeitssätzen bezeichnete Gödel selbst als Nonsens, und Alan Turing warf Wittgenstein vor, dass aufgrund seiner scheinbar toleranten Haltung gegenüber Widersprüchen Brücken einstürzen könnten, die Mithilfe mathematischer Berechnungen in Wittgensteins Sinne errichtet würden. Die Beiträge des Bandes erklären zentrale Überlegungen Wittgensteins zur Mathematik, räumen weit verbreitete Missverständnisse aus und analysieren kritisch Wittgensteins Bedeutung für die traditionelle Philosophie der Mathematik. Ebenfalls wird die Frage verfolgt, inwieweit Wittgensteins Bemerkungen zur Philosophie der Mathematik über seine Philosophischen Untersuchungen hinausführen.

1 Introduction Pyrrhonian skepticism is usually understood as a form of quietism, since it is supposed to bring us back to where we were in our everyday lives before we got disturbed by philosophical questions. Similarly, the ‘therapeutic’ and ‘resolute’ readings of Wittgenstein claim that

1 Wittgenstein’s Analogies The moral one draws from On Certainty ( oc ) is that “ knowledge and certainty belong to different categories ” (308). And sure enough, this is puzzling. What epistemological framework can make the concept of knowledge not only different but more importantly

Against these worries, I will try to show that we can and should understand the dependence of word meaning on sentence meaning in a way that implies the Context Principle. To do so, I will take a detour via Wittgenstein’s account of the connection between word
