His work has undeniably had a profound impact on the philosophy of language and the philosophy of mind.
Ludwig Wittgenstein's treatment of private language has received more attention than any other aspect of his philosophy. Yet, for more than fifty years, a remarkably self-contained exegetical tradition has defined the terms of debate and the principal positions that are discussed. Orthodox interpreters hold that the proof that a private language is impossible turns on showing it is ruled out by some set of systematic philosophical commitments about logic, meaning, and knowledge.
What Kripke has achieved, I think, is the first successful translation of what Wittgenstein was saying into the idiom of the contemporary Anglo--American mainstream in philosophy He not only drew the logical consequences of ordinary beliefs, but also solved intricate problems in mathematics. As a child prodigy, he was presented by his father to distinguished mathematicians and philosophers, who were overwhelmed by his talents.
Although many commentators have taken the sceptical solution to be broadly analogous to non-factualist theories in other domains, such as non-cognitivism or expressivism in metaethics, the nature of the sceptical solution has not been well-understood. The main aim of this paper is to advance our understanding of the nature of the non-factualism about meaning proposed in the sceptical solution. It ends by outlining what it takes to be the most pressing challenges facing the sceptical solution.

This togetherness of being and thinking has nothing in common with the Parmenidean one Heidegger tried to explicate phenomenologically. Caputo points beyond Heidegger to "a thinking which has been released from th conditions of finitude " and for which " there is only presence and only manifestedness " p. But to the ear of those as yet unbeatified such language can only be understood as that of the metaphysics of presence, which occludes the true phenomenality of being as a wresting from concealment. It is unclear how these religious representations can help us in the thinking of being, which is a rather sober, this-worldly task, since by "being" Heidegger never means anything transcending world. For its account of Heidegger and scholasticism and for its critique of previous studies on the topic this book is of great value.
Wittgenstein on Rules and Private Language is a book by philosopher of language Saul Kripke in which he contends that the central argument of Ludwig Wittgenstein 's Philosophical Investigations centers on a devastating rule-following paradox that undermines the possibility of our ever following rules in our use of language. Kripke writes that this paradox is "the most radical and original skeptical problem that philosophy has seen to date" p. He argues that Wittgenstein does not reject the argument that leads to the rule-following paradox, but accepts it and offers a "skeptical solution" to alleviate the paradox's destructive effects. While most commentators accept that the Philosophical Investigations contains the rule-following paradox as Kripke presents it, few have concurred in attributing Kripke's skeptical solution to Wittgenstein. Kripke expresses doubts in Wittgenstein on Rules and Private Language as to whether Wittgenstein would endorse his interpretation of the Philosophical Investigations. He says that his book should not be read as an attempt to give an accurate summary of Wittgenstein's views, but rather as an account of Wittgenstein's argument "as it struck Kripke, as it presented a problem for him" p.

According to his interpretation, Wittgenstein is propounding a sceptical paradox concerning rule following, which he resolves by means of a Humean answer. Since his remarks on rules have a clear bearing on issues that interest participants in this confrontation, they have become the focus of extensive discussion. Indeed, in the course of his reflections Kripke attributes to Wittgenstein a variety of views he never held, and imposes upon his writings a variety of interpretations for which there is no licence.
Ludwig Wittgenstein's work on rules has been put to a variety of uses by legal theorists. One wave of theorists employs Wittgenstein in an effort to show that law is radically indeterminate. They base their arguments on Saul Kripke's influential reading of Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. This essay begins with a consideration of Kripke's view and its implications for law.
Беккер кивнул, плохо соображая, какая тут связь. - Такая прическа была у Табу в день гибели. - Парень снова сплюнул. - Поэтому все его последователи, достойные этого названия, соорудили себе точно такие. Беккер долго молчал. Медленно, словно после укола транквилизатора, он поднял голову и начал внимательно рассматривать пассажиров. Все до единого - панки.
Она не обратила внимания на его просьбу. - Сядь. - На этот раз это прозвучало как приказ.
