|Abstract||Wittgenstein`s legacy does not consist in conceiving a systematic philosophy, but in a certain kind, a method of thinking. This thinking focuses on philosophical problems as illnesses of thinking and tries to cure these by means of philosophy/therapy. This approach with all its implications is certainly one of the reasons why Wittgenstein is practically ignored by a large number of academic philosophers. The therapeutic impetus of Wittgenstein`s philosophy can be understood against the background of his own psychological problems|
