Certainty Many of Wittgenstein's discussions have implications for epistemology. But it was only during the last year and a half of his life that he tackled the topic in a direct and sustained way. The resulting notes have been published as On Certainty.

Wittgenstein occasionally suggests that we can talk of knowledge only where, (i) there is a logical possibility of being mistaken or ignorant, and (ii) that possibility has been ruled out by the application of 'clear rules of evidence'. But he also states that 'I know how it is = I can say how it is, and it is as I say it is', which implies that I can know in the abs*ence of these conditions (LW II 49, 58; OC §§243, 250, 483-4, 564, 574-6).
