The harbinger of new review....

After reading "The Brain" I switched to less popular "The Stuff of Thought" by Steven Pinker. For me it is revolutionary book. I must admit - I never had appreciation to linguistic approach to philosophical problems. However, this book slowly changes my prejudice into admiration.
Too soon for the full review, but I already can say that it shows how important and fundamental and not-just-formal are linguistic studies. As one of the reviewers wrote: "Pikner probes the mystery of human nature by examining how we use words"....

More to come, I will continue reading (listening to) while travelling across Paris & London ...
