Through the Language Glass: How Words Colour Your World by Guy Deutscher

Synopsis: 

  • 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.
