Explaining Language Games and Grammar

(sent to analytic)

Stuart:

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).
