Analyticity/Syntheticity II 372
Analytical/Wittgenstein: It is a dangerous fallacy to say: that a pentagram has five corners, is not merely a convention, but shows the essence . - It is a proof just as long as it is a figure. - What happens when you draw, does not matter as evidence. - It just depends on what is embodied in the result. - It is not in the nature of something to be divisible. - The picture of an experiment is not the experiment itself - in contrast: Pythagorean theorem: unclear what is the drawing and what is the experiment. - Probably experience sentence.
