Description Kant's Critique of Pure Reason begins by noting that there are questions in the nature of our reason, but they do not reject but can not answer. A diagnosis follows immediately: These questions exceed all power of reason. Kant proposes a radical treatment: The reason must be enclosed in the limits of possible experience. That is, for him, however, that those unanswerable questions end not to harass the reason. Wittgenstein also acknowledges that our reason can identify questions but not the answers. The aim of his philosophy is to free the people of these questions, he knows his way around by the rules of language use.
