According to Kripke, the main theme of Wittgenstein’s Philosophical Investigation is the sceptical paradox about meaning and the sceptical solution to the paradox. Kripke’s interpretation of Wittgenstein has invited lots of criticisms. Especially, commentators are not happy with Kripke’s sceptical solution to the paradox. How can a sceptical solution be a genuine solution? In this paper, I argue that the commentators’ worries are based on the misunderstanding of Kripke. I argue that the nature of Kripke’s solution is falsificationistic, which is analogous to Popper’s falsificationism. And the implication of Kripke’s falsificationism is that Kripke is committed to the transcendental idealism about rules and meaning.
