Sample text

This evidently raises the question of why Adorno himself did not see the similarity with Wittgenstein’s philosophical endeavors. 4 A. J. Ayer located the originality of the logical positivists in their “making the impossibility of metaphysics depend not upon the nature of what could be known but upon the nature of what could be said” (1959, 11). The metaphysician is portrayed as one who is breaking the rules by using language in an illegitimate fashion, trying to say something while transgressing the rules of meaningful utterance.

But the dependence on social practice exhibited on Wittgenstein’s account is purely external: it does not emerge as the disclosure of the truth content of a philosophical concept, it is rather the dissolution of any claim to truth content. I shall have more to say about this below, but it will suffice for now to note that there is a striking difference in the account of the source of philosophical problems. 10 Hence, for Wittgenstein, the dissolution of those problems cannot disclose anything about experience.

Windelband attributed this to the dissatisfaction of a new generation with “positivistic impoverishment and materialistic desolation,” that is to say, the scientism and formalism of the dominant neo-Kantian model of philosophy. The efforts of nineteenth-century positivism to model philosophy on the natural sciences had been accompanied by a growing specialization of philosophy as a separate Fachdiziplin. At the turn of the century, as Windelband tells it, this new scientific respectability of philosophy had been achieved at the cost of a loss of philosophy’s ability to address the pressing spiritual questions of a new generation.
