Questões sobre o «nome» no pensamento da linguagem do século XX
Filomena Aguiar de Vasconcelos
AbstractThe analysis of the problem of language in the contexts of 19th century Western thought reflects decisive aspects of Wittgenstein's philosophy of the Philosophical Investigations (1945-49), taking into account the originality and the range of the pragmatic and instrumentalist concept of language. Reading the "name" of the cats in T.S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats, embraces the pressing consciousness of the philosophy of language in the circuits of a poetic discourse which is intimately dual and which, instead of only saying the things, says its names, transforms them into names and — at times — almost forgets them.
