Wittgenstein’s discussions of language games and of forms of life are parts of his theory of meaning. They led him to a fragmented view of language and so he proposed a search for the rules that.   To begin with it can be said that Tractatus was concerned to show that meaning in language is obtained in the form of logical expressions.
