My plan is to post translations of and comments on Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. Please feel free to comment.
5.556 There cannot be a hierarchy of forms of elementary propositions. Only what we construct ourselves can we foresee.
Why must this hierarchy be foreseen? Is he saying that there is no a priori except the arbitrary, the constructed?
Yes! READ what he says, stop laying your presumptions upon the text.
That's my plan--to read without presumptions. Not as easy as it sounds, obviously.
