It occurs to me that “I love you” demonstrates Wittgenstein’s theory about language gaining its meaning through use.
Wittgenstein inspires me even more for his methods than for the content of what he wrote.
While trying Sweet & Salty Snack Mix Cheez-Its last night at my daughter’s recommendation (she was right–they’re great), I thought about Georg Cantor and set theory, which he invented and I’m trying to learn about.
Maybe it’s because its Elvis Death Week (he died August 16th) that I’m remembering him fondly today.
I am inspired and relieved that there is something we can do to help the indigenous peoples of Latin America.
