Retrieving Culture from Language

Marcos Pinheiro

Abstract



This paper is part of an effort to present our conception of philosophy as
development of conceptual technologies. We shall assess Whorf’s ideas about
linguistics in order to develop suggestions as to how the ways of thinking in a
culture can be infered from an analysis of linguistic data.

Keywords


philosophy; 20th century philosophy; Wittgenstein Ludwig; linguistic relativity; thought vs language; culture; context
