Abstract

This paper briefly introduces the language game theory put forward by late Wittgenstein, and then discusses the metatheoretical implications of language game for information science (IS) research. It demonstrates that compared with logical image theory, language game is more suitable and useful to the foundation of information science. It explores several aspects of IS in detail in the light of language game theory, including attaching the importance of conception of the document, reconsidering the traditional views and principles of information retrieval language and indexing practice, transforming the classical models in information retrieval to those based on late wittgenstein’s views.
