Summary: The debate is ages old: Where does language come from? Is it an artifact of our culture or written in our very DNA? In recent years, the leading linguists have seemingly settled the issue: all languages are fundamentally the same and the particular language we speak does not shape our thinking in any significant way. Guy Deutscher says they’re wrong.

Audacious, delightful, and provocative, Through the Language Glass is destined to become a classic of intellectual discovery. Source: amazon.com
