Several works by Wittgenstein present excellent testimony of the conflicts which build faith and, at the same time an actual model that one must not avoid addressing such conflicts from the standpoint of personal life experience despite the precision that one must develop in regards to the philosophical and scientific language. Furthermore, as stated by Abreu-e-Silva (in press), "Philosophy is seen by Wittgenstein, in its objectivity as an activity of language criticism, and in its subjectivity, as self-analysis activity ".
