The Language Essence of Rational Cognition, with some Philosophical Consequences

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
This article analyses the essential role of language in rational cognition. The approach is functional -- I only look at the effects of the connection between language, reality and thinking. I begin by analysing rational cognition in everyday situations. Then I show that the whole scientific language is an extension and improvement of everyday language. The result is a uniform view of language and rational cognition which solves many epistemological and ontological problems. I use some of them -- the nature of ontology, truth, logic, thinking, scientific theories and mathematics, to demonstrate that the view of language and rational cognition developed in this article is fruitful and effective.
