Social Sciences - Philosophy / Philosophy of Language, Frege
Italian term or phrase: prendere slancio
Text, an essay for publication in a philosophical journal:

Nei prossimi due capitoli mi proporrò di individuare le idee chiave ***da cui ha preso slancio*** e attraverso le quali si è individuato il pensiero di Wittgenstein.

Ideas:

"from which Wittgenstein took inspiration" is too much of a jump...

"prendere slancio" seems to be gained momentum from...

That gave Wittgenstein momentum... "That Wittgenstein drew on for momentum and through which he developed his own thought."

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Peter

moved from


Explanation:
There are many ways to translate this: for philosophical thought I like the idea of 'seminal ideas' together with build/develop/move from or your own suggestion drew on

...the seminal ideas Wittgenstein moved from/built on

https://www.dictionary.com/browse/seminal

Perhaps the idea of seminal helps to render the idea of creative impetus implied in 'prendere slancio'
