This project engages Ludwig Wittgenstein and Michel Foucault on the subjects of word meaning and philosophical methodology. Though little has been written comparing these two thinkers, due in part to the common characterization of them as being situated in opposing philosophical traditions, there are points of parallel and overlap in their characterization of language as contingent. In this project, I draw out these parallels, as well as their disagreements, and ultimately demonstrate how both offer new philosophical vocabularies that ask for reconsideration of the way we understand philosophical problems and progress.
