DD303 – week 20 – Language and thought

A bit of an odd week this one, spread over two days because I had to prepare for the arrival of a house-guest and then run around panicking that the logistics that were thought to have been agreed for the Cotswold Way relay on Saturday hit a road bump. The chapter looking at language and thought was heavy on theories as to whether concepts necessary for learning language were innate or learned. For every type of theory that was proposed evidence was presented for how it wasn’t true or how it couldn’t be proved, so all a bit dissatisfying.
