Ethics/value/Tractatus: 6.422 ethics has nothing to do with punishment and reward in the ordinary sense.
So the question of the consequences of the action must be unimportant - at least the consequences should not be events - because something must still be correct with this question - Solution: reward and punishment must lie in the action itself.
Sense/Tractatus/Tetens: controversial thesis: that only descriptive sentences would make sense. - Ethics: Problem: normative sentences are meaningless.
Will/good/evil/ethics/Tractatus/Wittgenstein: (absolutely) good or bad will can only change the boundaries of the world - not the facts, not what can be expressed by language - solution: also in every other possible world the absolutely good/evil would be good or evil - therefore we cannot talk sensibly about the ethical._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
