The standard that
suggests all language has its root deep in the cognitive functions of
my species, is one I find very depressing. I say this because it
suggests to me that meaning through language will always be a reflection
of these structures. And there I was thinking perhaps if I spoke
Ateso or German or Balinese, I'd be at least wittier.
I also find it very
depressing when people curl a lip at Wittgenstein's "that which cannot be
uttered........" Then go on to accuse him of a total absence of
usefulness. I'd call them all bastards, but for two things. Today is
my Friday and I have realized why there is a special place in my heart for
those who are 'clinically' insane..
