'Guy Deutscher is that rare beast, an academic who talks good sense about linguistics...he argues in a playful and provocative way, that our mother tongue does indeed affect how we think and, just as important, how we perceive the world' - "Observer". Does language reflect the culture of a society? Is our mother-tongue a lens through which we perceive the world? Can different languages lead their speakers to different thoughts? In "Through the Language Glass", acclaimed author Guy Deutscher will convince you that, contrary to the fashionable academic consensus of today, the answer to all these questions is - yes. A delightful amalgam of cultural history and popular science, this book explores some of the most fascinating and controversial questions about language, culture and the human mind.
