In this contribution, Wittgenstein’s fundamental thinking on language is brought into contact with the hermeneutic perspective and this not just, as usually happens, by making reference to the Philosophical Investigations and, in general, the so-called late Wittgenstein, but even by starting from the fundamental axioms of the Tractatus. The overcoming of the nominalisticlogicistic symbolism of the first phase in favor of a pragmatics of communication achieves its ownmost potential in a concept of language/Lebensform as event. In this way, the anti-metaphysical and anti-essentialist – and at the same time anti-theoretical and anti-subject-centered – matrix of Wittgenstein’s hermeneutics can make the transition from Sprachphilosophie as the traditional philosophy of language to Wortphilosophie as a philosophy of the word, where it is possible to think of language no longer as a closed and predetermined dimension, but as an open and dynamic form of life.
