Malpas discusses and develops the ideas of Donald Davidson, influential in contemporary thinking on the nature of understanding and meaning, and of truth and knowledge. He provides an account of Davidsons holistic and hermeneutical conception of linguistic interpretation, and, more generally, of the mind.

Outlining its Quinean origins and the elements basic to Davidsons Radical Interpretation, J. E. Malpas book goes on to elaborate this holism and to examine the indeterminacy of interpretation and the principle of charity. The metaphysical and epistemological consequences of Davidsons approach are considered, particularly in relation to scepticism and relativism, the realist/anti-realist debate, and the problem of truth. Parallels are drawn between the Davidsonian emphasis on the centrality of the notion of truth and Heideggers notion of truth as aletheia, as the book looks to structuralist, hermeneutical and phenomenological sources to illuminate Davidsons position.
