There are rules that we follow in our lives, may we be conscious of it or not. It could be a rule of etiquette such as not to sneeze directly at a person, or the unspoken rules that apply to how we speak our language and understand concepts.
"The form of life" is an ambiguous term used to convey the rules that we accept to go about our public interactions.
Each of us belong to different forms of life, we are subjected to different cultures, values, and norms that we often don't question, because it's just the way it has been.
Saul Kripke was an American psychologist who asked questions about the rules of life. He was skeptical about the correctness of the rules and they way we choose to use it.
He argued, "can we ever be entirely sure that we're applying the rules of life correctly?"
This is not only just for the language we speak, but it could also be applied to mathematics, but we latch on the the principle of what is given.
The argument of Kripke remains an interesting thought: How do we know that we're doing anything properly? But Wittgenstenians -- the group of people who support the theories of Ludwig wittgenstein -- argue that Kripke is missing the point.
They argue that when you are a part of a form of life it means that you are accepting a system of rules that you don't question, just as how one would play chess; you don't keep asking why certain chess pieces move that way, but you just play the game.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
