This essay gathers Wittgenstein''s comments and considerations concerning the philosophical investigation of time. Time here serves as an exemplary instance of Wittgenstein''s manner of philosophical critique and his turn to a new practice of philosophy. His comments on time demonstrate this two-fold movement. On the one hand, he concerns himself with pointing out thewrong turnsphilosophers take when they ask:What is time?These include a semantic error, the over reliance on figurative language, the felt need for definitions, and a mistaken assumption about the task of philosophy that underlies these problems. On the other hand, he concerns himself with dwelling upon and describing time as an intricate and dynamic interweaving, a manifold and ongoing entanglement of human practices.
