Summary
The central claim of this book is that, early and late, Wittgenstein modelled his approach to existential meaning of his account of linguistic meaning. A reading of Nietzsche's The Birth of Tragedy sets up Bearn's reading of the existential point of Wittgenstein's Tractatus. Bearn argues that both books try to resolve our anxiety about the meaning of life by appeal to the deep, unutterable essence of the world. Bearn argues that as Wittgenstein's and Nietzsche's thought matured, they both separately came to believe that the answer to our existential anxiety does not lie beneath the surfaces of our lives, but in our acceptance - Nietzsche's "Yes" - of the groundless details of those surfaces themselves: the wonder of the ordinary
