ABSTRACT. The Tractatus speaks so much about logic because logic can unproblematically be spoken of in the language-game of logic, unlike ethics. But the status of the Tractatus as an ethical treatise which nevertheless presents its critique by means of formal logic is, in the end, caused by the fact that the philosophical problems with the logic it expounds are precisely what prevents philosophers from grasping Wittgenstein's ethical views.
