Abstract

Wittgenstein links the strange phenomenon of experiencing meaning to the more familiar phenomenon of seeing-as, or noticing an aspect. His interest in the subject seems to have been sparked by the work of William James, and this chapter examines both what he has to say on the matter (some of which long pre-dates the 'third' Wittgenstein stage) and its relevance to language-learning, prose, poetry and puns.
