Investigation and Criticism of Late Wittgenstein view concerning Language of Religion



The topics of "religion" and "its language" had been one of the main issues that in recent centuries raised in the field of religious studies in the west.
The semantics of divine attributes, wrangle of science and religion, and emersion of philosophical schools like positivism and logical positivism, should to be mention as factors raising the topic of the language of religion among philosophers and theologians.
One of the remarkable challenges of contemporary study of religion concerning language of religion is intelligibility of religious propositions; and it is more important than question of meaningfulness or meaninglessness and positivistic attitudes. Wittgenstein presented in this respect two different views in two stages of his philosophical life. In his first conception, i.e. "pictorial theory of meaning", language is considered as picture of fact; while in his second and later view, i.e. "usage theory of meaning", he presented the "theory of language games".
