    Function as Use. Wittgenstein's Practical Turn in the Early Manuscripts.Florian Franken Figueiredo - 2018 - Philosophical Investigations 42 (1):66-96.
    The idea that the function of language is its use is commonly ascribed to the Later Wittgenstein. In this paper, I argue that there is textual evidence already coming from the early manuscripts proving that Wittgenstein's philosophical development is culminating in the idea of function as use around 1929–30. I interpret a passage from Ms‐107 in order to show that Wittgenstein's practical turn has sources in different stages of his philosophical development, each of which is dominated by different ideas: the (...)

    Wittgenstein’s 1929–30 inquiries into probability.Florian Franken Figueiredo - 2022 - Philosophical Investigations 46 (1):50-75.
    In Wittgenstein’s manuscripts dating from 1929 and 1930, there are a number of entries on the notion of probability. In this paper, I explore Wittgenstein’s manuscripts between October 1929 and March 1930 and demonstrate, first, that Wittgenstein completely rejects the assumption that probability statements are based on an a priori principle. Second, I argue that the standard interpretation, which claims that Wittgenstein adopts an ‘epistemological view’ of probability, significantly understates the importance of Wittgenstein’s development of the notion of hypotheses as (...)

    Überreden und Überzeugen. Eine Verhältnisbestimmung aus der Perspektive des späten Wittgenstein.Florian Franken Figueiredo - 2015 - Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 63 (1):58-86.
    The word ‘persuasion’ can be used in two different ways. It can either implicate a process of changing someone’s belief or action without any argumentative justification or, to the contrary, indicate that the changes are indeed a result of argumentative discourse. These two different uses are part of a conceptual development in the history of philosophy. Nowadays they are often placed in contrast to each other, whereby persuasion in philosophy as a non-argumentative act is taken as doubtful and even unsound. (...)
