The head – of the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein – sits upon a lettered plinth. A quotation from ‘Is Our Language Complete?’ by the poet Jeffrey Wainwright, requires to be read all around three sides of the plinth. The process of reading it becomes deliberate, untidy.
There are the best of tools in the tidiest of racks under the stairs and these words are not among them
There is in this quote, a summary intuition into a sense of the involved and subtle philosophical explorations of this thinker.
The head is bronze. The plinth is Portland stone.
