From Wittgenstein’s Prison to the Boundless Ocean: Carnap’s Dream of Logical Syntax
After thinking about these problems for several years, the whole theory of language structure and its possible applications in philosophy came to me like a vision during a sleepless night in January 1931, when I was ill. On the following day, still in bed with a fever, I wrote down my ideas on forty-four pages under the title ‘Attempt at a Metalogic’. These shorthand notes were the first version of my book Logical Syntax of Language.(Carnap 1963a, p. 53)
