In the interpretation of wittgenstein's thinking about the concept of a rule, Two sharply differing positions have emerged. On one reading wittgenstein is taken to hold that the concept of a rule presupposes a community within which a common agreement in actions fixes the meaning of a rule. Baker and hacker argue vigorously against this reading. They take wittgenstein to be holding that agreement is necessary only for "shared" rules, "shared" concepts, "shared" language. According to their interpretation, Wittgenstein allows the (...) possibility that a human being who had always lived in isolation from any human community, Could have a language and could follow rules. In my article I argue that baker and hacker have misunderstood wittgenstein on the concept of a rule, That the passages they adduce in support of their reading do not support it, And that many passages in his writings show wittgenstein's position to be that without general agreement there could be neither rules nor language.

Cora Diamond, Juan Bautista Ferro, Peter Geach, Mario Montalbetti y Jorge Secada. La versión original que se publica ahora acompañada de mi traducción al castellano incorpora algunos agregados y correcciones que la profesoraAnscombe hizo en el manuscrito durante y después de la lectura del trabajo. Los únicos cambios que he (...) introducido yo en el texto inglés son unas mínimas alteraciones y correcciones gráficas y una corrección ortográfica evidente.Las menciones a términos del original inglés que he incluido en el texto en castellanovan entre corchetes angulares. Salvo las notas, éstas son las únicasinterpolaciones que he hecho en el cuerpo del artículo. (shrink)
I discuss the treatment by Chisholm of the problem posed by the fact that one can produce some neuro-physiological changes by moving a limb, namely the ones which cause the motions. I concentrate largely on the treatment Chisholm gave to this question before Person and Object, and I compare it with von Wright's discussion of it, I conclude that there are correct elements about both but that both are unsatisfactory, Chisholm's because it entails that we must know something which we (...) manifestly need not know when we move.
