ABSTRACT. In Wittgenstein’s works, we begin to move away from the Cartesian mechanical world of dead forms and structures, and begin to find ourselves face to face with a wholly new horizon, a new world of life and of living events and processes. Nothing in it retains its old character. We now see the intellectual veils, the static forms, systems, patterns, and logics that we have in the past taken for The Reality within which we must live our lives, as a set of frozen drapes thrown over a throng of diverse activities in continual living interaction with each other. These stiff and frozen dust sheets have hidden from us all the ways in which we, and other such beings, all live in unceasing responsive relations with each other. pp. 20–42
