Summary
The two linguistic philosophies of Ludwig Wittgenstein are discussed in this program by world-renowned author and professor Bryan Magee and University of California Professor of Philosophy John Searle. Searle examines Wittgenstein's earlier picture theory of meaning, in which reality, as perceived by humans, determines the structure of the language used to describe it. A revised theory views language as a tool that, depending upon its use, prescribes the reality.
