Synopsis

Does language reflect the culture of a society in any profound sense? Is our mother-tongue a lens through which we perceive the world? Can different languages lead their speakers to different thoughts? In this book, acclaimed author Guy Deutscher will convince you that, contrary to fashionable consensus of today, the answer to these questions is - yes.
