What is "the ineffable" exactly? An extensive reading of Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

Frontiers of Philosophy in China 2 (3):402 - 411 (2007)
Abstract
"The ineffable" in Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is an essential term that has various interpretations. It could be divided into two types, namely, positive and negative, or real and fake. The negative or fake type can be clarified by logical analysis, while the positive or real type can be understood only through philosophical critique. Both the positive and negative types consist of infinity or absoluteness, but the infinity is subject to distinctions in meaning and logic. "" «» , , , . , . ,
