The Builders’ Language - The first section of Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigations can be read as paving the way for an ironical understanding of section 2 as well as the languagegame described in this and extended in some of the following remarks. This kind of reading draws its inspiration from Wittgenstein’s remarkable use of the word ‘primi tive’. The irony serves to indicate that describing language-games for the purpose of grasping the point, or part of the point, of our notion of a language (in the full sense of this word) will, at best, lead to modest results: the ‘language-game method’ clearly has its uses, but Wittgenstein’s irony suggests that it does not hold the key to solving all the problems connected with our concept of a language in a straightforward way.
