the mystery of language through the eyes of child
by Ron Winestock
Ron takes the debate over to mind v matter into language – which is where the mystery of mind is best revealed. He gives us a crash course in philosophy in ten minutes – and uses the colour ‘red’ to reveal the immense complexity in simply naming the world. The highlight though belongs to his one year old grandson , Levi – and he uses Levi’s early experiments with words to celebrate the wonders of the mind at work through language and how we acquire it.
