Our purpose is to take into account Wittgenstein"s analyses about knowledge in the Philosophical Investigations, in order to articulate them and elaborate a concept of knowledge (Wissen). My first claim is that this is possible. My second claim is that the complexity of this concept has not been taken into consideration and its originality has been misunderstood in the horizon of the Philosophy of Mind (Vohra, A. 1986), of Philosophy of Psychology (Schulte, J. 1993; Budd, M. 1989). My objection is that the analysis of "knowledgeâ€? presupposes the dissolution of mind and psychology. My third claim concerns the interpretation of the verb "to knowâ€? from K. Bühler"s point of view as a kind of signal (Signal), at least in some uses, and as a symbol or an expression in some others. This connection concerning "knowledgeâ€? has not been brought out in, e.g., (Hacker, P.M.S. 1993; von Savigny, E. and Scholz, O.R. 1995).
