This thesis is a description, and assimilation, of the ideas in the works of the later Wittgenstein. Specifically, it deals with the link between Wittgenstein's conception of meaning and his methodologies for philosophy. In order to highlight the crucial points in the later Wittgenstein's work, I have contrasted it with his work from the Tractatus and the works of other Early Analytic thinkers. The primary goal of this thesis is to demonstrate that changes in Wittgenstein's understanding of meaning are closely linked to his changes in his approach to philosophy. The rigidity and obsession with form that present themselves in the Tractatus can be seen as an excellent contrast to the loose and amorphous concepts that are found in the Philosophical Investigations or On Certainty
