Thought of Late Wittgenstein and the Grammar of Religious Discourse

  • Jan Regner

Abstract

The aim of the present paper is to find a way of the theological method after Ludwig Wittgenstein’s remarks, especially in his Philosophical Investigations. As he maintains, language and human behaviour is connected, and so we cannot judge religious discourse without observing other nonverbal phenomena. We focused on works and authors who influenced Wittgenstein’s thoughts such as William James and James G. Frazer; and we briefly introduced to Wittgenstein’s argumentation against scientism.
