    One thought on “The Logical Syntax of Language”

    1. One of the great works of 20th century philosophy. Much of it is dry technicalia (though that too has its interest) - but the last sections outline a totally different way of doing philosophy than the contemporary (then or current!) mainstream. Worth reading just for the sakes of exploring the Principle of Tolerance. Worth reading in tandem with Carus' "Explication as Enlightenment", and Richard Jeffrey's essay "On Carnap's Voluntarism".
