really enjoyed this book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Of the Abuse of Words (Penguin Great Ideas) (Mass Market Paperback)
I bought this because I had been thinking about the gap in understanding/expression/meaning between what is felt and thought internally and what can be expressed to another person through words. Although this book does not have an answer for this, it does have some very interesting ideas about how we learn and then put ideas together based on what we have taken in from our learning- ie you only know about an apple if you have encountered an apple and you only know about them growing on trees if you have also learned this- you dont just come up with things that you have not learned.
