If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “Golly, I’d sure love to read one of the seminal works of 20th-century analytical philosophy, but I’d have to leave my beloved Emacs!” then you’ve sure stumbled onto the right repo.

Wittgenstein’s Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus is organized as an outline, which makes it eminently suitable for transcription into org-mode. This particular version features:

  • The original Ogden translation.
  • Formulas in LaTeX.
  • Truth tables as standard org-mode tables.

Remember: The limits of your language are the limits of your world, so use org-mode.
