Title: Charles Travis (Kings College London)
Do Individual Beliefs Have Internal Images?


An idea of Wittgenstein’s: Given the questions (e.g.) belief ascriptions  
speak to, there is no reason to expect what they ascribe to correspond in  
any interesting or significant way with any identifiable intracranial  
states or happenings. There is a viewpoint from which this seems at best  
perverse. It is incarnated in something known as the Representational  
Theory of Mind. After setting out that theory, this essay works to make  
Wittgenstein’s idea plausible, or at least reasonable, correspondingly RTM  
plausibly considerably more than there is any reason to think so. It works  
in this direction by borrowing, and working out, some ideas of Frege’s—very  
broadly speaking, ideas on what is, what not, a psychological question; in  
large part ideas on the generality of thought and the particularity of what  
thought is about. Later Wittgenstein is generally much endebted to Frege.  
Here is one area where the debt shows.
