When Wittgenstein was working on the latter part of the Philosophical Investigations, he said to his former student and close friend M.O’C. Drury: ‘My type of thinking is not wanted in this present age; I have to swim so strongly against the tide.’ In the same conversation he said: ‘I am not a religious man but I cannot help seeing every problem from a religious point of view’ (R, p. 94).
