that misperception is our confusedly endowing phrases with a lifetime of their very own: we 'enchant', and are 'enchanted by', phrases, colluding in a confusion that transposes directly to them, and the realm which we then see them as 'fitting', obligations which are truly ours to endure. Such phrases promise to
spare us the difficulty, not just of pondering, yet of living.

thoughts and require folks that we workout our means to cause in studying it, and of ways Wittgenstein later got here to reassess the success of the Tractatus.
