(sent to analytic)
I have not said anything that controverted W's idea of "something being hidden." I have not spoken of the "thought of pain," for example. The question is this: is the idea of "grammar" for Wittgensteinian-inspired folk: (a) an automation in the brain; (b) an autonomy in the brain (free-for-all); or (c) a anthropologic derivative used in a behavior.
The answer is clearly (c). Language is use, and use can be stupid.
Larry's posts about the concept of language game imply a conception of grammar that is too normative (too automated).
