Abstract

The paper intends to clarify the use that Wittgenstein makes, in various moments and contexts, of the adjective "problematic" and of the adjective-usedas- a-noun "the problematic", as well as to demonstrate that this clarification may teach a lot on the aims and spirit of Wittgenstein's philosophical method. Particularly, the paper drives at exposing (a) that what Wittgenstein names "the disappearing of the problematic" is, at one and the same time, his primary ethical goal and the main purpose of his philosophic method; (b) that referring to this purpose, both ethical and philosophical, one can better understand some peculiar aspects of his philosophical method, in particular his repetitive claim of immediacy, which shall be identified with the invitation that covers his entire philosophy: "to regard what appears so obviously incomplete, as something complete".
