Abstrakt EN: In my paper, I trace out affinities between Wittgenstein?s Tractatus and some forms of pragmatism. I begin by asking why the Tractatus is appreciated by Wilfrid Sellars, who is himself a source of inspiration for contemporary pragmatism. After sketching the aspects of Sellars?s pragmatism salient to the paper, I argue that in many respects the Tractatus is congenial to them. Sellars most appreciates (besides the picture theory) Wittgenstein?s refusal to assimilate every discourse to descriptive or depicting discourse. Furthermore, in the Tractatus we can find first glimpses of a theory of different statement functions based on what can be done (rather than said) using these statements.
