Ontology, semantics and philosophy of mind in Wittgenstein's tractatus: A formal reconstruction [Book Review]

Erkenntnis 29 (1):35 - 75 (1988)
Abstract
The paper presents a formal explication of the early Wittgenstein's views on ontology, the syntax and semantics of an ideal logical language, and the propositional attitudes. It will be shown that Wittgenstein gave a language of thought analysis of propositional attitude ascriptions, and that his ontological views imply that such ascriptions are truth-functions of (and supervenient upon) elementary sentences. Finally, an axiomatization of a quantified doxastic modal logic corresponding to Tractarian semantics will be given.
