Thought's Footing is an enquiry into the relationship between the ways things are and the way we think and talk about them. It is also a study of Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations: Charles Travis develops his account of certain key themes into a unified view of the work as a whole. The central question is: how does thought get its footing? How can the thought that things are a certain way be connected to things being that way?

"One could not possibly exhaust in a few words the depth of this book (both for Wittgenstein scholars and for philosophers interested in thought and language), which, after this very brief presentation, remains for the reader to discover. Thought's Footing is certainly (and has already proved to be) a major and essential contribution to the philosophy of language and mind and to the Wittgenstein legacy." --Metapsychology
