It is not immediately obvious that there was anything connecting Husserl or phenomenology with Wittgenstein"s work, but with an examination of the evidence, this attitude can be changed. I will establish the modest probability that Wittgenstein had contact with the ideas of Husserl, and that the ideas of Husserl were either directly or indirectly influential in Wittgenstein"s work. Wittgenstein"s concern with phenomenology is most explicitly expressed in his Philosophical Remarks (hereafter Remarks), however there is tacit concern throughout most of his writing.
