Access from EThOS:
The aim of this thesis is to explore the philosophical and stylistic difficulties of Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by looking at them in the contexts of modernity and modernism. Rather than placing the book in the lineage of analytic philosophy, I examine it instead in relation to some of the cultural and aesthetic discourses of its times.
