Rejecting readings which see a complete break between the Philosophical Investigations and the Tractatus, as well as views of Wittgensteins mature work which either lament or champion his anti-philosophical quietism, Luntley argues that Wittgensteins abiding concern was to show that the conditions for the possibility of intentionality consist not in a body of theoretical knowledge, but in perceptual knowledge, in our active capacity to see things aright.
