The article shows a differentiation of the concept of truth in Wittgenstein’s investigations, especially main factors playing decisive role for use of the concept of truth in logic, mathematics, psychology and religion. These specific meanings of the concept of truth are presented on the background of the „observational” use of truth, which in grammatical interpretation is equivalent to truth as correspondence.
