The journeys that could be brought under Non-classical Computation are imposing challenges for computer sciences. Wittgenstein's works on the philosophy of languages, Tractatus, and its relationship to the world can be used as a model of classical computation. The Tractatus proposes that a proposition can have only one complete analysis dependent on its essential features that link to the referent objects. A major result of the Tractatus stance is that every object is potentially unambiguously describable and it provides an extensive model of computer languages.
