Rat and Mole's epiphany of pan: Wittgenstein on seeing aspects and religious belief

Philosophical Investigations 21 (2):152–172 (1998)
The phenomenon of aspect recognition is at the core of Wittgenstein's later views on logic and language; it is also central to his reflections on religious language and experience. In both contexts, the uptake and use of pictures is the critical element in concept formation and in understanding. Clarity and confusion in religious thought lie in a domain defined by the structure, aesthetics, and functions of the pictures religious people use, and by the relations among them. The argument is conveyed through analyses of experiences of characters in _The Wind in the Willows and Homer's _Odyssey
