But if the supposed rule is formulated verbally we immediately realize that its verbal expression can be interpreted in different ways. Thus the rule cannot itself guarantee that it is followed in the intended or established or correct way. And neither can a new rule be formulated in order to determine how the first one is to be followed since exactly the same kind of problems will arise in connection with it as with the first one.

There is, by the way, an overkill in the transition from the Tractatus to PI. Wittgenstein has two rejections of the picture theory, the first in the Tractatus itself. His metaphilosophy alone is sufficient to reject the picture theory. But the actual rejection (caused by Sraffa's Neapolitan gesture, if folklore is to be trusted), suggesting that his metaphilosophy is idling, seems to have been brought about by a change in his views on logic: logic cannot show that propositions satisfy the 50 intelligibility conditions put on propositions, not in the way required by the picture theory.
