Write-up2 (as at 17/08/2018 17:35:31): Wittgenstein
- In "Wittgenstein (Ludwig) - Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus", Wittgenstein rejected the need for the identity symbol in the perfect language.
- No doubt Wittgenstein had something to say on Personal Identity, but I am presently ignorant thereof.
- As an undergraduate, I wrote an essay on "Wittgenstein (Ludwig) - Bodily Sensations", which may or may not be relevant.
- For a page of Links4 to this Note, Click here. There are too many items to pick up on, given that this is a fairly peripheral topic for my research. I have, however made a manual check and added some items found thereby.

- This is mostly a place-holder8.

- A number of my philosophical Notes are “promissory notes” currently only listing the books and papers (if any) I possess on the topic concerned.
- I’ve decided to add some text – whether by way of motivation, or something more substantive – for all these identified topics related to my Thesis.
- As I want to do this fairly quickly, the text may be confused or show surprising ignorance.
- The reader (if such exists) will have to bear with me, and display the principle of charity while this footnote exists.
- If only a “non-updating” run has been made, the links are only one-way – ie. from the page of links to the objects that reference this Note by mentioning the appropriate key-word(s). The links are also only indicative, as they haven’t yet been confirmed as relevant.
- Once an updating run has been made, links are both ways, and links from this Notes page (from the “Authors, Books & Papers Citing this Note” and “Summary of Note Links to this Page” sections) are to the “point of link” within the page rather than to the page generically. Links from the “links page” remain generic.
- There are two sorts of updating runs – for Notes and other Objects. The reason for this is that Notes are archived, and too many archived versions would be created if this process were repeatedly run.
- Frequently I’ll have made copious marginal annotations, and sometimes have written up a review-note.
- In the former case, I intend to transfer the annotations into electronic form as soon as I can find the time.
- In the latter case, I will have remarked on the fact against the citation, and will integrate the comments into this Note in due course.
- My intention is to incorporate into these Notes comments on material I’ve already read rather than engage with unread material at this stage.
- I may have read others in between updates of this Note – in which case they will be marked as such in the “References and Reading List” below.
- Papers or Books partially read have a rough %age based on the time spent versus the time expected.
- I have selected this and other items by Lynne Rudder Baker because her Constitution View is one of the main areas of my research.
- I have also favoured others of the ‘usual suspects’ in this regard.
