Ludwig Wittgenstein (Character)
from Wittgenstein (1993)
Ludwig Wittgenstein: It makes no sense to speak of knowing something in a context where we could not possibly doubt it, therefore to say "I know I am in pain" is entirely senseless. When you want to know the meaning of a word, don't look inside yourself, look at the uses of the word in our way of life. Look at how we behave.
Bertrand Russell: Are you saying there are no philosophical problems?
Ludwig Wittgenstein: There are... linguistic, mathematical, ethical, logistic and religious problems, but there are no genuine philosophical problems!
Bertrand Russell: You're trivialising philosophy.
