Inscribed in graphite, lower left: "36/65" Image includes the words: 'NOVEMBER 1964 | What I give is the Morphology of the use of an expression. I show that it has kinds of uses of which you had not dreamed. In philosophy one feels forces to look at a concept in a certain way. What I do is to suggest, | or even invent, other ways of looking at it. I suggest possibilities of which you had not previously thought. You thought that there was one possibility, or only two at most. But I make you think of others. Furthermore, I | made you see that it was absurd to expect the concept to conform to those narrow possibilities. Thus your mental cramp is relieved, and you are free to look around the field of use of the expression, and to describe | different kinds of uses of it.'
