I really didn’t understand this chapter very well. It’s a very short reading (4 pages) so I recommend all of you to read it Chapter 11: Philosophical Investigations - language-games: “instead of producing something common to all that we call language, I am saying that these phenomena have no one thing in common which makes us use the same word for all, - but that they are related to one another in many different ways. And it is because of this relationship, or these relationships, that we call them all “language”” he will try to explain this - consider what we call “games”: board games, card games, ball games, Olympic games … What is common to them all? If you look at them you will not see something that is common to all, but similarities, relationships, and a whole series of them at that - the result of this examination is: we see a complicated network of similarities overlapping and criss-crossing: sometimes overall similarities, sometimes similarities of detail. -
