What is the relation between the nature of the things you think about, on the one hand, and the ways you think about them on the other? Is the nature of the world prior to the nature of thought and meaning, or not? In this book Christopher Peacocke argues that the nature of the world - its metaphysics - is always involved in thought and meaning. Meaning is never prior to the nature of the world. Peacocke develops his view in detail for topics including magnitudes such as distance and duration, for the self, and for such abstract objects as numbers. He concludes by arguing that his account provides a new account of the limits of intelligibility and genuine meaning.
