Summary/Abstract: The design of this issue is to elaborate Wittgenstein’s theory of meaning as use and to display itsconnection with his much abused critique against Gödel’s incompleteness theorem. It is shown that this theory motivates the immediate rejection of the existence of unprovable truths in any formal logical system. According to the propounded analysis, the use theory of meaning has profound importance forthe development of conceptions of logical and mathematical truth which depart from the traditional metaphysical, epistemological and linguistic classifications.
