Abstract:

This interdisciplinary book considers the relationship between language and
thought from a philosophical perspective, drawing both on the philosophical
study of language and the purely formal study of grammar, and arguing that the
two should align. The claim is that grammar provides homo sapiens with the
ability to think in certain grammatical ways and that this in turn explains
the vast cognitive powers of human beings. Evidence is considered from
biology, the evolution of language, language disorders, and linguistic
phenomena.
