Nothing Is Hidden: A Wittgensteinian Interpretation of Sraffa
AbstractIn light of Piero Sraffa's well-known influence on Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophical thoughts, John Davis argues that there is an analogy between Sraffa's criticism of Marshall and Wittgenstein's Sraffa-inspired criticism of his Tractatus Logico- Philosopshicus. However, Wittgenstein criticized not only the particular theory he had in the Tractatus but also the whole construction of the problem that the Tractacus was intended to solve. This paper argues that, analogously, Sraffa's work implies a criticism not simply of the neoclassical theory of value but of the whole construction of the problem that the neoclassical theory of value was intended to solve.
