It is natural to think that Wittgenstein does not have room for the purported privacy of experience, that ‘inner processes’ stand in need of ‘outer criteria’. He does of course say that, but nevertheless I do not think Wittgenstein has a view that can be summed up so neatly. I cook up from Wittgenstein’s own ingredients a template for the experience of music that in a certain sense allows the privacy of musical experience.
