Atomism Re III 28
Atomism: the leading thought is that facts are autonomous. The truth of the conjunction is simply the result of the truth of each member of the conjunction. Reduction: each link corresponds to a fact.
  Wittgenstein later abandoned the atomism. (Just like realism and correspondence theory.)
