... this looks interesting. link: http://dx.doi.org/10.1111%2Fj.1467-9205.2011.01444.x Philosophical Investigations Philosophical Investigations ________________________________ Wittgenstein on Simile as the “Best Thing” in Philosophy1 Posted: 13 Jul 2011 06:41 PM PDT Abstract In a remark written sometime between 1933 and 1943, Wittgenstein suggests that philosophy ought really to be written as one “writes a poem.” Around this time he also talks of simile as the “best thing” in philosophy. In this paper I consider what it would mean to take such claims seriously. Through examining newly discovered material from the (unpublished) Skinner manuscripts (MSS), I offer an analysis of Wittgenstein's approach to literary techniques (broadly conceived) and see how this impacts on his conception of philosophy.
