Philosophy aims at the logical clarification of thoughts. Philosophy is not a body of doctrine but an activity. A philosophical work consists essentially of elucidations. Philosophy does not result in ‘philosophical propositions’, but rather in the clarification of propositions. Without philosophy thoughts are, as it were, cloudy and indistinct: its task is to make them clear and to give them sharp boundaries.” Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, trans. D. F. Pears and B. R. McGuinness (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1961), 49.
