    LOGICAL ATOMISM TO PRACTICAL HOLISM experience is crucial for the subsequent development of Wittgenstein's philosophy. 2. LOGICAL ATOMISM At the heart of the Tractarian system is an argument for the necessary existence of simple objects. That argument begins from the observation that I speak and understand language, and leads to the.   Avrum Stroll writes that “[Wittgenstein’s] Tractatus begins with an affirmation of a species of logical atomism” (Ibid. ). (Ibid. ). What Stroll means by this is that Wittgenstein posits a fundamental unit of language that cannot be reduced any further, and so it can only be described, not explained by recourse to some deeper.

Griffin studies the central topics of Wittgenstein's philosophy before and in the first parts of the Tractatus: objects, substance, states of affairs, elementary propositions, pictures, and thoughts. He aims to understand and question Wittgenstein's programme of analysis as the key to understanding the Tractatus.3/5(1).

In The Philosophy of Logical Atomism, Bertrand Russell, with input from his young student Ludwig Wittgenstein, developed the concept and argues for a reformed language based on pure logic.

Despite Russell's own future doubts surrounding the concept, this founding and definitive work in analytical philosophy by one of the world's most /5(10).

For Wittgenstein too, the ultimate constituents of reality are to be revealed by a process of logical analysis; so, to that extent, the label seems apt. Bertrand Russell's "The Philosophy of Logical Atomism", () provides an enormously more consistent,and coherent perspective of the essence of Semantic Atoms than any of Jerry Fodor's ideas ever provided.

The Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (widely abbreviated and cited as TLP) (Latin for Logical Philosophical Treatise or Treatise on Logic and Philosophy) is the only book-length philosophical work by the Austrian philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein that was published during his lifetime.

The project had a broad goal: to identify the relationship between language and reality and to define the limits Author: Ludwig Wittgenstein. Wittgenstein's logical atomism is related to his logical constructivism, according to which every proposition is the result of successive applications of one logical operation — the so-called “N-operator” — to a base of elementary propositions, but this topic goes beyond the scope of the present entry.
