: 5. Is language a primarily social level phenomenon in the MoQ?
: Posted by: Sam Norton
The question -I think- is whether language is a social phenomenon. MOQ
is not special in this case. Although technically language can be used
for intellectual communications it always feels like like a low-bandpass
filter for ideas. Ideas need to be simplified in order to be expressed
in language. On the other hand people can talk for hours in a manner
reminding me of monkeys picking flees from each others bodies. Also may
I bring to mind Wittgenstein who said that logic is the border of
language and that it is impossible to express transcendental ideas at
all in clear language. I would say language is a social phenomenon.
