Language as a Window

Dieser Eintrag ist auch auf Deutsch verfügbar.

In Language as a Window into Human Nature, Steven Pinker explains how the mind turns the finite building blocks of language into infinite meanings, looking at cursing, metaphors and the issue of common knowledge. This video is only part of the full talk, brilliantly animated by RSA. ((Video of the complete talk available is on YouTube here.))

Die Sprache als Fenster zur menschlichen Natur

This entry is also available in English.

In Language as a Window into Human Nature erklärt Steven Pinker, wie wir in unserem Hirn die begrenzte Menge an Sprachbausteinen in eine unbegrenzte Vielzahl an Bedeutungen umwandeln. Dabei bedient er sich des Fluchens, der Metaphern und des Allgemeinwissens. Dieses Video ist nur ein von RSA schön illustrierter Ausschnitt der gesamten Vorlesung. ((Das Video in voller Länge findet man auf YouTube hier.))
