|Abstrakt EN:||The talk deals with the cooperation between Wittgenstein and Waismann under Schlick’s patronage in the period of 1928-1936. Firstly, the purport and historical development of the project Logik, Sprache, Philosophie which was meant to systematically present the ideas of the Tractatus and later also Wittgenstein’s new philosophy is reconstructed. Secondly, the transition from the “principle of verification” to the conceptions of "hypothesis" and "criteria" is expounded. Thirdly, the controversy that arose due to Waismann’s "insufficient" acknowledgement of Wittgenstein in a paper on identity is recalled. These three expositions are intended as arguments for the reconsideration of, first, Waismann’s alleged plagiarism or misinterpretation of Wittgenstein, and, second, Wittgenstein’s purported reluctance to set up a scholarly-like theory of semantics.|
