I suppose it is that certain physiological processes correspond to our thoughts in the blue book wittgenstein a way that if we know the correspondence we can, by observing these processes, find the thoughts.

But in what sense can the physiological processes be said to correspond to thoughts, and in what sense can we be said to get the thoughts from the observation of the brain? I suppose we imagine the correspondence to have been verified experimentally.

Blue and Brown Books - Wikipedia

Let us imagine such an experiment crudely. It consists in looking at the brain while the subject thinks. And now you may think that the reason why the blue book wittgenstein is going to go wrong is that of course the experimenter gets the thoughts of the subject only indirectly by being told them, the subject expressing them the blue book wittgenstein some way or other.

But I will remove this difficulty by assuming that the subject is at the same time the experimenter, who is looking at his own brain, say by means of mirror.

The crudity of this description in no way reduces the force of the argument. Then I ask you, is the subject-experimenter observing one thing or two things?

Don't say that he is observing one thing both from inside and from the outside; for this does not remove the blue book wittgenstein difficulty.

We will talk of inside and outside later. The subject-experimenter is observing a correlation of two phenomena.

The Blue Book (1934)

One of them he, perhaps, calls the the blue book wittgenstein. This may consist of a train of images, organic sensations, or on the other hand of a train of the various visual, tactual and muscular experiences which he has in writing or speaking a sentence.

Both these phenomena could correctly be called "expressions of thought"; and the question "where is the blue book wittgenstein thought itself? If however we do use the expression "the thought takes place in the head", we have given this expression its meaning by describing the experience which would justify the hypothesis that the thought takes places in our heads, by describing the experience which we the blue book wittgenstein to call "observing thought in our brain".

We easily forget that the word "locality" is used in many different senses and that there are many different kinds of statements about a thing which in a particular case, in accordance with general usage, we may call specifications of the locality of the thing.

Ludwig Wittgenstein's Blue Book

Thus it has been said of visual space that its place is in our head; and I think one has been tempted to say this, partly, by a grammatical misunderstanding. And now we are inclined to ask "and where do you see the visual field?

In saying that the idea of our visual field being located in our brain arose from a grammatical misunderstanding, I did not mean to say that we could not give sense to such a specification of locality.

Imagine the blue book wittgenstein we looked at a group of things in this the blue book wittgenstein, and, while we looked, a probe was stuck into our brain and it was found that if the point of the probe reached a particular point in our brain, then a particular small part of our visual field was thereby obliterated.


In this way we might co-ordinate points of our brain to points of the visual image, and this might make us say that the visual field was seated in such and such a place in our brain. And if now we asked the question "Where do you see the image of this book?

But what if someone the blue book wittgenstein "I can assure you I feel the the blue book wittgenstein image to be two inches behind the bridge of my nose"; -- what are we to answer him?

The Blue Book

Should we say that he is not speaking the truth, or that there cannot be such a feeling? What if he asks us "do you know all the feelings there the blue book wittgenstein How do you know there isn't such a feeling? Suppose that to our doubts he answered: Why shouldn't I have a different way of estimating it?
