Language Learning in Wittgenstein's Later Philosophy.
Hardwick, Charles S.
Ludwig Wittgenstein's pragmatic conception of language, his theory on language learning, and his treatment of the function of language in the growth of the child are the focus of this book. Wiggenstein's study of language is compared with those made by linguists, psychologists, and sociologists, and accounts of language learning based on empirical studies are presented. The chapters of the book are as follows: I. Some Characteristics of Wittgenstein's Later Work; II. Meaning and Use: The Pragmatic Conception of Language; III. Context and Meaning; IV. Conclusion, Part One; V. The Teaching of Meaning; VI. Language Learning in Wittgenstein's Later Work; VII. Understanding of Rules; VIII. Conclusion, Part Two; IX. Infant Speech; X. The Growth of Meaning; and XI. Conclusion, Part Three. A bibliography and Index are included. (CL)
