Abstract
“Moore–Wittgenstein controversy” on the problem of certainty should be understood and studied from two perspectives—one from philosophical use of ordinary language and the other from using ordinary language for normal linguistic exchange. To study it from one and only one perspective—either Moorean or Wittgensteinean—is narrow and biased. Looked at from the normal linguistic exchange, Wittgenstein’s arguments are convincing and Moore’s truisms seem rather odd. But when looked at from philosophical discourse and his defence of common sense, Moore’s truisms are interesting and not faulty.
