Quel che parlare del tempo insegna sul linguaggio. Da Wittgenstein ad Agostino

Sebastiano Vecchio


Starting from the problem of an obscure reference to Augustine by Wittgenstein, the paper follows in parallel the paths through which both the philosophers, arguing in similar ways about the vagueness of temporal statements, look at these ones as the main topic to maintain strongly the central role of ordinary language. Concerning the identification of the reference, the paper finally suggests the hypothesis that the passage in question could be just a paragraph from the Confessions where Augustine asserts a general principle of linguistic behaviour.
