Example text

The attempt to condense a philosophy into a set of detachable theses extinguishes the work of the painstaking ascent toward self-awareness that is the very point of philosophical writing. What matters, for both thinkers, is that we achieve an insight that transforms how we relate to our concepts. This is not a thesis asserted in those concepts employed in the philosophical writing (hence Wittgenstein’s assertion that they can be safely “thrown away”). It is rather a form of self-reflection that occurs in the process of trying to come to grips with what happens in the course of trying to elucidate a set of theses.

10 Hence, for Wittgenstein, the dissolution of those problems cannot disclose anything about experience. Before returning to these issues, it will be helpful to put Wittgenstein’s claim about what philosophy can “say” in a larger context. My intention in the next section will be to read Wittgenstein from an Adornian perspective. This is not however, as Adorno reads him (which, as I mentioned, is likely due to Adorno’s filtering of Wittgenstein through his reception in Viennese positivism). What emerges from this reading, I believe, is a striking similarity in the view of the world shared by these two philosophers, and an equally striking difference in their theoretical responses to this insight.

The first is the adequate precision of what is to be said and what can be said (des Auszusagenden und Aussagbaren), it is a fully factual refinement . . the second is dilettant-like and bombast. —Ernst Bloch, zu Subjekt und Objekt LANGUAGE AND DISENCHANTMENT There are almost certainly no philosophers of the twentieth century who rival Adorno and Ludwig Wittgenstein in terms of the depth of their self-reflection on questions of philosophical language and style. It is somewhat surprising, in light of this fact, that fruitful comparisons between Adorno and Wittgenstein have only begun to be developed within the last twenty years.
