Example text

There are some indications that Wittgenstein was initially inclined to ignore Frege's advice and to continue with his work at Manchester. Thus we find him still listed as a research student in engineering for the start of the autumn term, his studentship having been renewed for the coming year. It may be that, having been floored by Frege in argument, he had resolved to overcome his obsession with the philosophy of mathematics and to persist with his vocation as an engineer. He had not, apparently, made any prior arrangement with Russell, when, on 18 October - about two weeks into the Michaelmas term he suddenly appeared at Russell's rooms in Trinity College to introduce himself.

Politics, he said, 'is what a man does in order to conceal what he is and what he himself does not know' . The phrase encapsulates one of the many ways in which the outlook of the adult Wittgenstein corresponds to that of Kraus. ' Political questions, for him, would always be secondary to questions of personal integrity. ' is inappropriate and cannot be answered. Rather, all other questions must be asked and answered within this fixed point - the inviolable duty to be true to oneself. The determination not to conceal 'what one is' became central to Wittgenstein's whole outlook.

At the age of twenty-three, in an act of self-consciously symbolic significance, he had shot himself in the home of the man whom he considered to be the very greatest of geniuses. Sex and Character had been published the previous spring, and had received, on the whole, fairly bad reviews. Had it not been for the sensational circumstances 0f its author's death, it would probably have had no great impact.
