The Relationship Between Language and Thinking (20 points)
Consider the following quote by the philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, who believed that thought without language was impossible.
â€œThe limits of my language are the limits of my life.â€
For more information on Wittgenstein and his analysis on the importance of language, watch the video Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889 â€“ 1951) The Limits of Language.
Next, examine whether it is possible to think without using language. If you believe it is possible, describe the primary ways in which a person might enact so-called â€œlanguagelessâ€ thinking. If you believe it is not possible, describe what you foresee as major problems with languageless thinking.
