  • Wittgenstein and Language Games
    • Ludwig Wittgenstein
      • 1889-1951
      • Austrian philosopher who taught at Cambridge University
      • A student of Bertrand Russell
      • Only published one work in his lifetime - 'Tractatus Logico - Philosophius'
      • There are '2 Wittgensteins' - Early and Later
    • Language Games
      • 1.For Wittgenstein language is a game and talking or writing about different things is playing a different game
      • 2. Words have literal meaning from the dictionary, but depending on the game they mean different things
      • 3. Different concepts (e.g. science, religion, poetry, football) have different 'Forms of Life'
        • The meaning of words are different depending on which form of life is discussed
          • Some argue that 'Forms of Life' are broad but some argue that they are narrow
    • Don Cupitt's Non-Cognitive Analysis of Wittgenstein
      • 1. God is not an objective thing in reality (non-realism)
      • 2. There is no understanding outside of the language game about God
        • This seems to misinterpret what Wittgenstein said about us constantly learning new games and rules in order to converse and understand people
      • There is question about whether Wittgenstein's theory of language games should interpreted as cognitive or non-cognitive
        • Cognitive: what religious language is talking about is real
        • Non-Cognitive: what religious language is talking about in not real (does not correspond to anything in reality)
    • D.Z. Phillips' Cognitive Analysis of Wittgenstein
      • 3. Religion and science are different forms of life therefore we cannot use the same rules to talk about both disciplines
      • 2. We can learn the rules but belief is different to prove and so leads to difference of opinions
      • 1. God is an objective thing in reality (realism)
        • God is a different thing to everything other thing in reality and so cannot be subject to scientific discovery
      • There is question about whether Wittgenstein's theory of language games should interpreted as cognitive or non-cognitive
        • Cognitive: what religious language is talking about is real
        • Non-Cognitive: what religious language is talking about in not real (does not correspond to anything in reality)
    • Analogy or Language Games
      • Aquinas vs Wittgenstein
        • In terms of religious language, Aquinas is specifically using analogy to address the problem of the terms we use about God
        • Wittgenstein's language games is more about what language does and how we see language
      • Both Aquinas and Wittgenstein were concerned with conceptual duty
        • They also both focus on the operation of language which leads to understanding - Anthony Kenny

I like to play different games, especially educational ones. but most of all I love poker. and of course I love that this game requires a complex thought process. but most of the time I play online. therefore, I prefer to use reliable betting and gambling services. and the dr.bet casino welcome bonus helped solve this problem. I was able to make the most of the welcome bonus. here I can find for myself a lot of interesting things about profitable places, types and strategies of internet games. and not to doubt the reliability of the service.

What do you think about playing online poker? I think she's more fascinating. In poker, the player is constantly tense and thinking. Moreover, in poker you can also earn good money.

Poker, this is a game for skillful players who have their heads on their shoulders. This game needs a good mind and patience. I have been playing poker for a long time and recently started playing large bets. If you want to learn more, read the information on Rakeback deals. Here you will find a wide variety of poker tables. I think that's what you need.
