LANGUAGE, THOUGHT AND MIND Studies have shown that changing how people talk changes how they

think. For instance, teaching people new color words, changes their ability to discriminate colors. And teaching people a new way of talking about time gives them a new way of thinking about it. Accordingly language shapes our thought and our way to think, construct reality and ourselves. Hence, language constitutes ourselves and is the very essence of what makes ourselves us human. This is what philosophy does: working on words it can give the human being more to think.
