This chapter addresses the ostensibly Wittgensteinian question of "home" and how our words can intelligibly affect our perception of home and likewise alienate or marginalize others. The perceptions of the "outside in" set-the marginalized-illustrate this privileged marginality by questioning the definition of "we." While he deliberately avoids politicizing his epistemology, Wittgenstein nevertheless asserts that variations on the philosophy of "what we do" exist. Learning how that differs for each person is crucial in creating the sense of home (community) that everyone needs.
