Review of: Representation and Reality in Wittgenstein's Tractatus, by J. L. Zalabardo
This review discusses critically three aspects of the monograph (Oxford University Press, 2015). First, Zalabardo's interpretation of the overall strategy of the Tractatus. In this connection, the reviewer discusses the question of how to locate Zalabardo's interpretation with respect to the contrast between "standard" and "resolute" readings of the Tractatus. Secondly, Zalabardo's controvertial claims about the deep affinities between the Tractatus and Russell's 1913 Theory Knowledge manuscript. And finally, Zalabardo's interpretation of the relation between the Tractarian theory of elementary propositions and the Tractarian theory of non-elementary propositions.
