Is language essential to understand the relation with the world?

  • It is, but...

    Yes, but we have to be careful about what we mean by that. Some form of language is essential to understanding the world, but there are, for example, many disabled people who are not able to speak but are able to write very well and to understand what they read as well as a non-disabled person.

  • Yes, Language is essential to understanding the world around us

    Though some forms of communication without language are of course possible. The shared human experience is not enough to express ideas and thoughts to one another. The complexity of emotions and decisions is hard enough to show with language, The thought of showing such ideas without a code to do so seems absurd.

  • Yes, language is essential to understand the relation with the world?

    I believe language is essential to understand the relation with the world. Each country has their own culture and the only way we can possibly understand their beliefs and government is to understand their language. How else will we know what they believe or the way they live? How can we secure trust from other nations if we are not able to communicate with them? Yes, there must be a common language around the world.

  • Yes, language is essential to understand the relations with the world.

    I know "love" is the universal language, but relations with another country is anything but love. You have to be able to understand what their agenda is. You have to understand so you can make decisions, and compromises. I think much of the issues today are because a lack of communication. How are we to communicate if we don't understand them?
