The Inner and the Outer book
In the last chapter, I presented Wittgenstein as holding that the relation between thought and fact, and that between will (or intention) and deed, are internal relations. Only as regards the relation between thought and fact can this view be ascribed to the early Wittgenstein, and even there the view needs to be qualifi ed, given that strictly speaking a relation can only hold between objects, and “the thought that p” is not the name of an object. As for the relation between will and world, the early Wittgenstein adopted an extreme, and so to speak quietist, position, as we have seen-a position whose distance from his position concerning belief seemed worth questioning.
