Tim Thornton defends and outlines the key issues of the philosophy of content found in Wittgenstein's influential work Philosophical Investigations. He provides a systematic demonstration of Wittgen-stein's views on linguistic meaning and mental content providing an understanding of how Wittgenstein's work relates to modern debates in the philosophy of content. Only this book explains in detail Wittgenstein's views on content in the context of contemporary work, including that of Davidson, Rorty, and MacDowell among others.
