This paper discusses the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein. The paper focuses on two writings of Wittgenstein - "Tractatus" and "Philosophical Investigations". The paper discusses Wittgenstein's theory that most paradoxes can be solved by focusing on words, their origins and the role that they play in life. It discusses his theory that the greatest paradox is that philosophy, which is supposed to help people understand life, makes it doubly confusing.
From the Paper:"After 1929 Wittgenstein completely avoided theorizing. The task of philosophy, as he begins to see it, is never to explain but only to describe. Since Western philosophy has mainly been conceived as a search for explanations at a very high level of generality, his work stands to one side of this convention. Thus, the biggest paradox of them all: There are no answers to philosophical questions since there are not really any such questions--just pseudoproblems that pretend to be questions."
