Cavell elaborates the view, traceable from Wittgenstein to Davidson, that there is no thought, and thus no meaning, without language, and shows how this concurs with psychoanalytic theory and practice. Her articulation of a theory of meaning and mind leads to a recasting of a number of psychoanalytic tenets and a strong philosophical defense of others - such as the idea that the mind is inherently social. Cavell's argument takes up several issues of continuing interest to both philosophers and psychoanalysts, including the explanation of action, especially irrational action, the concept of subjectivity, the minds of children, the genealogy of morals and narration in "life stories".
