Travis throughout contrasts Wittgenstein's view of these notions with Frege's. Contemporary philosophers are supposed to hold views continuous with Frege's, so Wittgenstein's attacks on Frege are supposed to have contemporary relevance Dummett, Fodor, and McDowell are mentioned by name as targets at various points in the book. It becomes cle This is Travis's second book on Wittgenstein.

It becomes clear in the second half of the book that Travis's view is moved by a general view of representation and truth. In extremely abbreviated form, his view is that a representation is essentially general even one containing a singular term and the world is essentially particular. This raises the question of how something essentially particular could satisfy something essentially general. He argues against the Tractarian idea that the world has the same structure as the representation.
He answers the question about the relation of world to representation with the idea of an understanding, which is what makes the particular bit of the world count as being represented. This, as far as I can tell, is a version of a worry about how our grasp of a rule could determine an infinite number of future applications a worry raised, e. At each novel step, it is required that we apply the rule, in a way that requires certain human sensitivities.
That kind of view clearly sets off anti-realist alarm bells, and Travis spends a chapter of the book trying to defuse those kinds of worries. There are parts of this book that are clearer than normal Travis-speak, but crucial parts are as opaque as ever. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
