The Differentiation of Truth in Wittgenstein’s Investigations

Maciej Soin

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.
