This paper was inspired by criticism of pluralism and relativism about truth, offered by Pascal Engel in (Engel 2011). We discuss the main points of his talk in terms of our understanding of the later Wittgenstein. We share the essence of Engel’s absolutist thesis about truth and give it our interpretation in terms of the notion of family resemblance.
