No. I agree with Wittgenstein in this case. The question is something like rationalism v empiricism, or whether we should abide by hard empiricism?

"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

The Fool: really, I don't get that from it, I get that as it says a metaphyical difference. In that, Wigg.. is saying that it doesn't exist in a phyical literal way aka metaphyical where Burtrand is refering to a specific, phyisical way as in what know to be an actual rhinoceros.

The Fool: why did you post this here?

You misspelt Wittgenstein. And Bertrand. And Wittgenstein argued that there could easily be a rhinoceros in the room, but the empirical evidence may disagree.
