N2 - When Wittgenstein is called a pragmatist, it is usually with qualification. In this paper, I examine some of the criteria used to rally Wittgenstein to pragmatism (primacy of action, anti-foundationalism, fallibilism), and conclude that inasmuch as Wittgenstein is neither an anti-foundationalist nor a fallibilist, there may not be sufficient grounds to call him a pragmatist.
