Intending and Willing in the Philosophical Investigations - Taking as a starting point the analysis of certain typical intentional verbs, such as intending, willing, meaning etc., developed in the last paragraphs of the Philosophical Investigations, this paper sets out to clarify the grammatical solution Wittgenstein proposes for the problem of intentionality and voluntary action, considering it the outcome of that revision of the first way, codified in the Tractatus, of looking at the problem of the relation or, in Wittgenstein’s words, of the harmony of language and reality, thought and world. The main steps in this revision, retraced in the writings of the transition, in The Big Typescript and in the Investigations, are reconstructed in the light of the Wittgensteinian texts and critically debated.
