So I'm confused by the following. Let's say someone makes the claim:
Math is also a language game.
I can imagine 2 different kind of responses Wittgenstein might say:
- Indeed, it suffices to only provide examples of concepts one uses in language, and math is merely another example.
- You have taken 2 concepts and placed it outside their original intent, and this makes the statement meaningless.
Which (or neither) response of Wittgenstein would be likely? What is the correct Wittgenstein analysis of this claim?
I still haven't been able to assimilate this philosopher's ideas.
