 Ludwig Wittgenstein (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
The move from the realm of logic to that of ordinary language as the center of the philosopher's attention; from an emphasis on definition and analysis to ‘family resemblance’ and ‘language-games’; and from systematic philosophical writing to an aphoristic style — all have to do with this transition towards anti-dogmatism in its extreme.
Instead of these symptoms of the philosopher's "craving for generality", he points to ‘family resemblance’ as the more suitable analogy for the means of connecting particular uses of the same word.
Family resemblance also serves to exhibit the lack of boundaries and the distance from exactness that characterize different uses of the same concept.

 Family resemblance and games
The motivating idea in Wittgenstein is that on any specific occasion of use, the speaker and hearer attach some sense to the name ``Moses,'' connect it with some set of features or properties, but that this sense can vary from speaker/hearer to speaker/hearer and from time to time for any given speaker or hearer.
Taken in this way, the cluster theory is not about the meaning of a name--in the way that ``family resemblance'' explains the ``meaning'' of ``game.'' Instead, it has become a theory--and this is Wittgenstein's point--about the shared nature of language, something common to a language/linguistic community.
Searle takes this a step farther: to every name, we/language/the community associate some ``cluster'' of properties gathered from among our understanding and understandings; some of these are true of the referent, some of which aren't--after all, some of us have some true beliefs at some time or another, and some of us have false beliefs.
