The [fantasy] Vienna School for Truth Exploration
was founded by Ludwig Wittgenstein in 1918 [the
Tractatus"s Preface date]. Its aim: Prepare students for
exploring the world and its reality. Its textbook: The famous
Tractatus. Its motto: "Argue or Agree!" The School has a
peculiar aura of back-to-the-future, since its students have
already been to a mid-nineteen forties Ludwig
Wittgenstein"s lectures at Cambridge. It may get confusing,
as these "two" philosophers happen to have exactly the
same name. The students" names are Greek letters,
Alpha, Beta, Gamma, etc. [In this paper, all the characters,
including Wittgenstein, are fictitious. Sometimes they are
the Tractatus Wittgenstein, sometimes they are the
Investigations one, and often they are I].
