This chapter explains and defends the general method to be used throughout the book. It is inspired by the later Wittgenstein, and draws heavily on developments of the Wittgensteinian view offered by Philip Pettit and by Huw Price. One part of the strategy is to pay adequate attention to the fact that language is a social practice; it is something we use to get things done. Another part of the strategy is to avoid appeal to theoretically substantial notions of truth or reference in providing demystifying philosophical accounts.

Keywords:   language, method, naturalism, Philip Pettit, Huw Price, reference, truth, Wittgenstein
