Wittgenstein et la vie à venir : éthique et logique dans le Tractatus logico-philosophicus

Abstract : The Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is an ambiguous book. It is perhaps even this ambiguity, in that it borders on contradiction, and because it has dictated its writing just as much as it  motivates its reading, that constitutes its driving force. Nevertheless, the book is full of ambiguities. We will examine them in turn. As the Tractatus is worked on, it will become clear that only the restitution of the ethical aim of the system that it makes is able to defuse them, and thus to let it unfold in all its radicality. It is that the Treatise, beyond the first sight of its own ambiguity, and in virtue of the work that the latter, on the part of the reader, requires, is a radical book. Its mad claim is to be the last of the books, its vocation to close the story of metaphysics in a free and happy life.
