Wittgenstein on Language and Thought by Tim Thornton

Book Description

This book defends and outlines the key issues surrounding the philosophy of content as demonstrated in Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. The text shows how Wittgenstein's critical arguments concerning mind and meaning are destructive of much recent work in the philosophy of thought and language, including the representationalist orthodoxy. These issues are related to the work of Davidson, Rorty and McDowell among others.

Death of an Unsigned Band by Tim Thornton Death of an Unsigned Band, Paperback (July 2011)

Being an unsigned band isn't a situation - it's a mental illness. Russell Groom knows, and he wants to change things fast. But Russell doesn't fit the traditional rock-star mould, and his woefully unexceptional band are headed nowhere. Enter Josh - the arrogant son of a successful record producer - with an offer it's impossible to refuse...

Alternative Hero by Tim Thornton Alternative Hero, Paperback (March 2010)

By the time most people hit 30, they've managed to do one of the following things: grow up; quit idolising rock stars; and move on a bit from the music they were obsessed with at the age of 17. Clive Beresford has failed to do all three. But that's about to change.
