summary

Language is not merely a tool for coding and conveying information, nor is it only a means of transferring thoughts from one individual to another. It takes part in their formation, and as an essentially social institution it helps each of us to understand our own orientation against the backdrop of the value horizon, together with which it forms a long-term network of social relations. This book by Charles Taylor, a prominent Canadian philosopher and a Templeton Prize laureate, imparts the fruits of his decades-long thinking on the traditional dilemmas of the philosophy of language.
