This dissertation began as a paper for Professor Michael McNulty's seminar on Wittgenstein's Philosophical lnvestigations. That paper, ''To Verify a Feeling," was subsequently accepted by the British Society for the Philosophy of Religion for presentation at Oxford in August 2003. I gratefully acknowledge Professor McNulty's encouragement to "grow this paper into a dissertation" as well as the admonition from Professor D.Z. Phillips, reactor to my paper at Oxford, to "get it clear whether you mean to verify the cognitive worth of emotional feeling overall or just to verify that we can know whether we are talking about the same particular feeling."
