Logic in the tractatus Weiss, Max


What is logic, in the Tractatus? There is a pretty good understanding what is logic in Grundgesetze, or Principia. With respect to the Tractatus no comparably definite answer has been received. One might think that this is because, whether through incompetence or obscurantism,Wittgenstein simply does not propound a definite conception. To the contrary, I argue that the text of the Tractatus supports, up to a high degree of confidence, the attribution of a philosophically well-motivated and mathematically definite answer to the question what is logic.
