|Calculus: a calculus is a system of symbols for objects (which are not further specified) as well as rules for the formation of expressions by the composition of these symbols. There are other rules for transforming composite expressions into other expressions. As long as no specified objects are accepted for the individual symbols, the calculus is not interpreted, otherwise interpreted._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Calculus/Wittgenstein/Hintikka: if language is calculus - (WittgensteinVs) - you can use formalism to label those parts of language, which are subject to variation.
Calculus/Description/Border/Wittgenstein: a calculus cannot be described without using it, and language cannot be described without specifying its meaning.
Mental Acts/Wittgenstein: are not used in addition to calculating or speaking - instead: calculus, precisely speaking as such - Calculating: one step at a time - no mental act which anticipates the whole - even meaning is not a mental process that would accompany the words.
Calculus/Wittgenstein: two different calculi can result in e.g. 3 - but they are still two different results._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
