Abstract: There are reasons to attribute conceptual relativism to Wittgenstein. They are related mainly to his notion of grammar, its posited arbitrariness, theory of language games and forms of life intertwined with them. In his famous article “On the Very Idea of a Conceptual Scheme,” Donald Davidson rejected conceptual relativism, questioning the very idea that various conceptual schemes exist. In my paper, I would like to consider how Davidson’s arguments could be responded to, drawing on some of Wittgenstein’s findings.
