This introduction introduces three central themes of the chapters in the collection: the relationship between Wittgenstein's account of representation and Russell's theories of judgment, the role of objects in the tractarian system and Wittgenstein's philosophical method. It argues that some central aspects of the tractarian theory of representation should be understood as a modification of Russell's ideas on judgment. It then discusses the role of Frege's context principle in Wittgenstein's ideas.
