In the first section of this paper, Entitled "wittgenstein on behaviorism," I examine wittgenstein's criticisms of a behavioristic interpretation of psychological sentences. I conclude that these criticisms are devastating against the kind of behaviorism toward which they are directed, Namely, That of the vienna circle. In the second section, "behaviorism in wittgenstein," I argue that wittgenstein's analysis of psychological sentences does not commit him to any form of behaviorism.
