Are there truths, states of affairs or knowledge that cannot be put into words? This book distinguishes several varieties and grades of ineffability and tries to ascertain whether they are coherent notions and whether they actually obtain. It is concluded that the weaker grades of ineffability do obtain, and that even the strongest grades have not been shown to be incoherent.
