      Also, you might consult (as I just did, never having read
      Wittgenstein) the following link:

      http://www.poetrymagic.co.uk/literary-theory/analytical-
      philosophy.html

      This idea of "language as social expression" is just what I
      distrust, from my Nietszchean perspective. I believe from long
      experience, dynamically competing, as it were, with the
      uncompromising analysis of truth-claims that one finds implicit in
      daily life (by observing one's own behaviour, for instance, and
      comparing that with one's own speech and written work), that human
      feeling has tendency to accumulate delusions - usually comfortable -
      by which to shield the individual from truly existing. Most
      individuals do not want to become that, ie, individual, so they are
      not existentialists. My idealism leads me to believe in the unique
      individuality of each, however. When I see another human being, in
      some sense I see myself.
