Abstract

Why did Wittgenstein pick a passage from Augustine’s Confessions, rather than one from a better-recognised work featuring centrally in the philosophical canon (or at least, from a more explicitly philosophical/metaphysical work of Augustine’s than the Confessions), in order to open his Philosophical Investigations? And, if he was determined to do so, why pick the particular passage from Augustine that he chose, rather than a passage from one of Augustine’s more (explicitly) philosophical discussions, later in the work?
