Example text

Perhaps to get clear on the whole phenomenon of human language, we need to see how the narrower phenomenon (speech in words) relates to the broader field of the whole range of “symbolic forms”, in Cassirer’s terms. Wittgenstein takes the context-building of Kant and Frege (judgment or sentence as the context for word-meaning), and in turn embeds this in a wider frame: as one set of language games among others; and he sets the language games in the allencompassing frame of a form of life. There is another dimension of Wittgenstein’s contextualization, which goes beyond Frege and Kant (though not Hegel, to take an important figure from Brandom’s Tales of the Mighty Dead).

In one clear sense he doesn’t. ” He doesn’t commit himself to accepting, given “I’m a guard,” the practical conclusion “Let me force them to their death,” and acting on this conclusion. To attribute an institutional status isn’t to accept the norms that, according to institutional practice, govern that status. Return briefly, then, to Thea, attributing a discursive practice to speakers of German. Isn’t she, in effect, treating this discursive practice like an institution? If so, then in treating Hans as saying that Jülchen doesn’t have to speak, and doing this by attributing to Hans, Jülchen, and others in Germany a set of normative attitudes toward themselves and each other, she isn’t herself coming to share the attitudes she attributes.

But at this stage of our discussion, a successful “private language argument” remains to be offered. I don’t think the philosophical literature shows an agreed interpretation of how the argument is supposed to go – or indeed that it offers any interpretation that has been established as a convincing argument, which can now serve as established background for further argument. 7 Brandom contrasts saying with “claiming”, which he tells us is roughly the same as “holding” something to be the case.
