Thought is too elusive to be studied

All good science, can be translated into the technical vocabulary of physics,’ yet ‘nothing happens in the world, not the flutter of an eyelid, not the flicker of a thought, without some redistribution of microphysical states 
To adopt this stance is not to confound the questions confronting the philosopher – with those confronting the physicist.

Theories require language, thought is too elusive to be studied except in its expression. So our question about thought of objects becomes a question about verbal reference to objects. 

 There is, for the philosopher, the question of how we come to have the very thought of the objects of physical theory; indeed, of how we come to have the thought of objects at all, of any kind. e are launched into the philosophy of language and, in particular, into the theory of linguistic reference
