John --

I'm curious if you see any relationship between the work of Godel and the
(later) Wittgenstein. My vague understanding of Wittgenstein's arguement
is that words (all language) cannot, ultimately, be'grounded', that all
language is 'a language game' made up by the players in a social context.
Does this not parallel Godel's view of mathematical formalisms?
