4.1274 The question of the existence of a formal concept is nonsensical [unsinnig]. Because no proposition can answer such a question.

(Thus one cannot ask, e.g.: “Are there unanalysable subject-predicate propositions?”)

A formal concept, after all, is purely formal. If one existed, what would exist? Or not exist, on the contrary?
