LUDWIG WITTGENSTEIN    Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus

One of the most important philosophical works of the twentieth century, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is Ludwig Wittgenstein’s attempt to conquer reality through logic. Written as a series of numbered propositions, it elucidates the relationship of language to logic and to reality, ending with an infamous statement of breathtaking clarity: “What can be said at all, can be said clearly; and what we cannot talk about we must pass over to silence.”
