"Wittgenstein's form . . . gives room for multidirectional movements. Thus, the constellation of short remarks with his sudden changes, criss-crossing, and jumping around became the final form of Investigations and contrasts to the book he originally intended to write. Breaking with the unified model of language and reality, it instead presents a practice and a picture of writing that resist preconceived order but that acknowledge diversity and difference. To present his philosophy, Wittgenstein claimed a looser textual organization and arrangement that obviously parallel the acclaimed liberation and decenteredness of hypertextual structures." (Gunnar Liestol "Wittgenstein, Genette, and the Reader's Narrative in Hypertext" 89).
