IF WITI'GENSTEIN COULD TALK, COULD WE UNDERSTAND HIM? Perusing the secondary literature on Wittgenstein, I have frequently experienced a perfect Brechtean Entfremdungseffekt. This is interesting, I have felt like saying when reading books and papers on Wittgenstein, but who is the writer talking about? Certainly not Ludwig Wittgenstein the actual person who wrote his books and notebooks and whom I happened to meet. Why is there this strange gap between the ideas of the actual philosopher and the musings of his interpreters? Wittgenstein is talking to us through the posthumous publication of his writings. Why don't philosophers understand what he is saying? A partial reason is outlined in the first essay of this volume. Wittgenstein was far too impatient to explain in his books and book drafts what his problems were, what it was that he was trying to get clear about. He was even too impatient to explain in full his earlier solutions, often merely referring to them casually as it were in a shorthand notation. For one important instance, in The Brown Book, Wittgenstein had explained in some detail what name-object relationships amount to in his view. There he offers both an explanation of what his problem is and an account of his own view illustrated by means of specific examples of language-games. But when he raises the same question again in Philosophical Investigations I, sec.

Did you ever wonder why self-improvement strategies dealing with change and success make things seem so reasonable? Could it be that what makes all these mantras and pop books so appealing on a mass scale is the same thing that keeps them from working. They all "make sense." But are all the things that make sense TRUE? Dr. Fleming takes you deep within the mind of a psychologist and leadership consultant, letting you in on the secrets of the half-truth-the clever way we convince ourselves we are changing bad habits, leading a company to profitability, or even rising personally to the highest level of thinking about ultimate reality. Utilizing a questioning process that turns half-truths over to find the denied part of reality in us all, Dr. Fleming paves a way to understanding and change that no simple "7 Tips or Tools" book could possibly provide.

This book presents several chapters written by this author using the pseudonym Ole Ed. The impetus for my writing these stories was to reduce the burden that I experienced from a very hectic air travel schedule that I endured before finally retiring from the Fortune 5 corporation that I was employed by for thirty years! I became bored from picking up the same ole magazines on airplanes and reading the same ole stuff. I hope that these stories will provide you with a little bit of light, pleasurable reading during your travels to places afar that I probably no longer yearn to go to. All the stories presented in this book are based partially on my actual life experiences, hence, the title Half-Truths . . . I have tried to word the title of each story in a way that will not give you a hint of how that story will end. Have fun, and guess your heart out!

Discover the truth (and the falsehood) in the sound bites that rule so much of your life Today they're called sound bites, but they're older by far than sound bites, and they play a larger role in your life - those pithy, quotable phrases that capture in a few words the wisdom of the world: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." "Talk is cheap." "It doesn't matter what you believe, so long as you're sincere." "Love is blind." "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder." In a few words - wisdom in shorthand - they speak truth won from generations of experience (and we know from our mothers that "experience is the best teacher"). They sayings survive because they work; which is why, in good times and bad, we use them to guide our actions and even to resolve intractable disputes ("Hey, let's just agree to disagree.") The problem is that most of them are not really true; they're half-truths. And when we rely on them uncritically (as we often do) they lead us out of one difficulty right smack into another. That's why philosopher Montague Brown, author of The One-Minute Philosopher, has here taken up the task of considering over 75 of these popular sayings, plucking from each the wisdom they contain while showing just where they steer you wrong. Presented here in an easy-to-read format are the common understandings of each saying, plus the additional insights you need to transform each from a dangerous cliche into a living truth that will improve your understanding and effectiveness in our world. But this is more than a book of aphorisms; taken altogether, it's a delightful mini-course in philosophy, studied by means of the perennial wisdom that's been embodied in these sayings over the years. Hey,why not try it? After all, "The proof is in the pudding!"

Phenomenological Aspects of Wittgenstein s Philosophy

In his writings around 1930, Wittgenstein relates his philosophy in different ways to the idea of phenomenology. He indicates that his main philosophical project had earlier been the construction of a purely phenomenological language, and even after having given up this project he believed that "the world we live in is the world of sense-data,,,l that is, of phenomenological objects. However, a problem is posed by the fact that he does not appear ever to have given a full, explicit account of what he means by his 'phenomenology', 'phenomenological language', or 'phenomenological problems'. In this book, I have tried to unravel the nature of Wittgenstein's phenomenology and to examine its importance for his entire work in philosophy. Phenomenology can be characterized as philosophy whose primary concern is what is immediately given in one's experience. This 'immediately given' is not merely impressions inside one's mind, but includes also the part of objective reality that impinges upon one's consciousness. Thus, an aim of phenomenological enterprise is to grasp this objective reality by attending to immediate experience. Husserl's phenomenology is in fact a case in point.

You've heard of these groups - the secretive ones that only the crème de la crème are invited into, the ones outsiders speculate about for centuries - I'm the second in my family invited to attend, but to them, I'm fresh meat. New blood. New money, too. They think they'll elbow past me, that I'm here for their amusement, for them to walk all over, they'll find out soon enough that I'm not. I may look like one of them, with my designer bags and clothes straight from the Parisian runways, but I'm not. I'm here for answers, to take revenge for blood spilled on their centuries-old Persian rugs. I transferred here in search for answers about what happened to my older brother, who hightailed out of here, and my friend who seemingly disappeared into thin air. I certainly wasn't here for the attention of the star hockey player, regardless of how much he willed my eyes his way. I wasn't here for his scrutiny or his judgment or to read into his mysterious aura. I was here for the society, because only they held the answers I needed. That was, until I found out that in order to get those answers, I needed to go through him. He's saying if I want in, I have to play by their rules, follow their lead. It's a game I'm willing to play. I may be the second person I know of to be invited into their society, but I'll be the first to make it out intact. *This is a complete standalone novel*

On the surface, Whitley Rose appears relatively put together. People are in awe of her songwriting career, her Nashville apartment has a one-of-a-kind view, and her rock star boyfriend - well, he's a dirtbag, and truth-be-told her tiny apartment actually sucks. Meanwhile, on the chance her crumbling dreams aren't devastating enough, she's called back home to face the reality that her father is seriously ill. Sawyer Grant is dangerously handsome for a guy in jogging pants, and far too focused for a spontaneous girl like Whitley. However, having experienced the loss of his own family, he knows what it's like to face the hard truth of losing someone. Despite the heaviness of their circumstances, they still find themselves smiling and laughing together under the summer sun. Perhaps an open sky, laughter, and love are the only truths they really need.
