The context principle and Wittgenstein's criticism of Russell's theory of types

Synthese 98 (3):401 - 414 (1994)
Abstract
In this paper, I try to uncover the role played by Wittgenstein's context principle in his criticism of Russell's theory of types. There is evidence in Wittgenstein's writings that a syntactical version of the context principle in connection with the theory of symbolism functions as a good reason for his dispensing with the theory of types.
