The article shows an evolution of the concept of truth in Wittgenstein’s Nachlass (1930–1933). In this period Wittgenstein passes from the view on the possibility of truth as an internal relation to the explanation acknowledging the harmony between thought and reality as an accomplishment of grammar. An analysis of the reasons of this change explains the standpoint of the Investigations on truth.
