Sample text

11 That image, of glasses which we do not see that we can remove, is in Wittgenstein too,12 used by him in somewhat different ways, but there are important similarities. Hylas has taken himself all along to be like someone wearing distorting spectacles: he has (or so he has thought) only the dimmest grasp of things as they really are, independent of perception, because he knows them only indirectly, through perception. The removal of the glasses is the recognition, through philosophical discussion, that his perceptions never were something between him and the real: he has all along (unbeknownst to his bemused self) been perceiving what is real.

21 That idea of the understanding as, in its correct use, in agreement not with some external thing but with itself, is central in my reading of Frege and Wittgenstein. But I should not say "that idea," as if it were a single idea, which they all shared. What I want to suggest is rather that there are, in Kant's thought, in Frege's writings, and in the Tractatus, different workings out of what it is for the understanding to be 'in agreement with itself' and for logic to teach us what that is. These different workings out are themselves tied to the shifts from Kant to Frege to Wittgenstein in how logic itself is conceived, in what it is for logic to be necessary for all thinking, and in what it is for logic to be non-arbitrary and totally distinct from empirical psychology.

I had been in the middle of Berkeley's discussion of the distinction between real things and chimeras. He describes roughly how we do distinguish them; and it was my account of that that led to the objection just now. But he is also concerned with what stops us looking. And what I want to do is leave the objection temporarily and turn to what I have called his diagnosis. Berkeley conceives our state of mind here as more or less like this. What we are doing is not attending to our actual ways of telling what is realwhich do not involve an idea of being real.
