Existence, inexpressibility and philosophical knowledge

Grazer Philosophische Studien 74 (1):273-290 (2007)
Ontology has traditionally been regarded as a core area of philosophy. However, during the 20th century, some philosophers have maintained that issues concerning existence and ontology are meaningless (Carnap) or inexpressible (Wittgenstein). Others, like Quine, have argued that these issues are both intelligible and important. After a short discussion of these views, the paper goes on to discuss the twist Husserl gives to our way of looking at this kind of philosophical knowledge through his notion of the thetic component of acts.
