  Gordon Baker (ed.) - The Voices of Wittgenstein: The Vienna Circle: Ludwig Wittgenstein and Friedrich Waismann - ...
Waismann eventually conceded that the whole scheme was unworkable, and he and Schlick persuaded Wittgenstein to abandon the idea of co-authorship and authorize the two of them to write the text.
Waismann’s more doctrinal style goes along with what one can’t help feel is a failure to recognize what is most important in Wittgenstein’s new approach to his philosophical task, namely its attempt to range over the ’unsurveyable seething totality of our language’, by means of comparisons, juxtapositions and contrasts.
Waismann’s rendering of Wittgenstein’s ideas is a demonstration of the danger attending the exposition of his thought, and it is one to which all commentators are subject.

But Friedrich Waismann, a onetime follower of Wittgenstein, would answer the question with a qualified "No." Waismann's criticisms of Wittgenstein rely to a great extent on Wittgenstein's own dicta that in language games the meaning of words, at least for a large number of classes, is the use of the words (PI, para.
Waismann's position on the intuitive nature of the concept of infinity and its grammatical structure within mathematical language, is, on the whole, certainly more satisfying and, I believe, more true to the language game of mathematics as it is played by mathematicians.
Waismann objects that if this were true, it would be impossible for me to recognize the proof as a proof of the theorem in question.

One of the original members of the Vienna Circle gathering of logical positivists, Waismann defended a conventionalist logic in Einf¸hrung in das mathematische Denken (An Introduction to Mathematical Thinking) (1936).
Sprachspiele und Vagheit der Sprache and his later lectures, published posthumously as The Principles of Linguistic Philosophy (1965), contributed to the development of analytic philosophy by encouraging serious analysis of ordinary language.
Waismann held that even precisely-defined terms have an "open texture", since novel circumstances might always render their appication uncertain.

Waismann argues in favor of mathematical intuition and the reality of infinity with a Wittgensteinian twist.

The founder and leader of the group was Moritz Schlick, who was an epistemologist and philosopher of science.
Among its members were Gustav Bergmann, Rudolf Carnap, Herbert Feigl, Philipp Frank, Kurt Gödel, Otto Neurath, and Friedrich Waismann; and among the members of a cognate group, the Gesellschaft für empirische Philosophie (“Society for Empirical Philosophy”), which met in Berlin, were Carl Hempel and Hans Reichenbach.
A formal declaration of the group's intentions was issued in 1929 with the publication of the manifesto Wissenschaftliche Weltauffassung: Der Wiener Kreis (“Scientific Conception of the World: The Vienna Circle”), and in that year the first in a series of congresses organized by the group took place in Prague.
