Summary This study examines the relationship between thought and language by considering the views of Kant and the later Wittgenstein alongside many strands of contemporary debate in the area of mental content, represented by the work of Evans, Peacocke, and McGinn. Building on an analysis of the nature of concepts and conceptions of objects, Grant Gillett generates an interesting account of psychological explanation and of the subject of experience. He offers a novel perspective on mental representation and linguistic meaning, accommodating the vexed topics of cognitive roles and singular thought. He concludes by outlining certain considerations relevant to sceptical arguments and the nature of perception. The synthesis that results from this project shows some significant correlations with contemporary work in cognitive and developmental psychology and is directly relevant to work in epistemology, philosophy of mind, and philosophical psychology.
