  14. Terry says:

    And then there is linguistic determinism (language shapes thought). The limits of our language are the limits of our world. What we cannot say, we cannot think. It makes me wonder what important things we are missing because we cannot think about them using language. These things still exist but are beyond language and therefore beyond any discourse.
