The Fulfillment

What I what? do do question? l told me: because if I’m a complete idiot I will make aeronautical engineer; but, if I am not, I will make me philosopher. I told him to write me something during the holidays on a philosophical topic and that then I would say if it was a complete idiot or not. At the beginning of the next academic year brought me the fulfillment of this suggestion. After reading only a sentence, I said: No. You must not be an aeronautical engineer. Subsequently, however be so distant from the political affairs and nationalists decided to obey the call to ranks of his country and goes, as soldier (having failed to use the enormous influence of his father to be received better conditions) of the Austrian army to fight in the first world war. Her personality was always intense, passionate, vehement, bright, creative and profound (is has spoken many times of Wittgenstein’s a genius), independent, rigorous and rigorist forever with itself, atrabiliaria sometimes, hiperestesica and tortured almost.

In other words, had the profile of those men who do not rest looking for absolutes and truths. Someone said that Wittgenstein has been seen by many as a positivist, for wanting, like them, to draw the line between what about which one can speak and what approaches which we must remain silent. But it is not so certain their belonging to that school since positivism argues – and this is its essence – than what we can talk about which is what is important in life, while Wittgenstein believed passionately that what really matters in life is precisely what on which, from his perspective, we must shut up. Finally, as Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Schopenhauer and Marx, Wittgenstein was not only a philosopher: was a philosophy in itself.
