Language of Renewal

V&E Philosophy of Language

 

Language is at the heart of the V&E project. The aim is to use language and communication to bring into conversation ideas that have become alienated from one another.  Language separates knowledge into categories: the doctor, the librarian, the engineer, the artist, the mathematician, the priest, the politician, and so- on, all English speaking, all believe they are speaking the same language. Yet when expressing the ideas they are unable to understand one another.

Language tends to separate knowledge into categories: the doctor, the librarian, the engineer, the artist, the mathematician, the priest, the politician, and so- on, all English speaking, all believe they are speaking the same language. Yet when expressing the ideas they are unable to understand one another.

Why is this?  

Perhaps, it is because they are using categorical language.

Categorical Language

The language specific to a given social, or professional group.  A language “category” is one that has its own sub-language with unique nd specific definitions and associations for words used.

Language can be alienating, but is also essential for reharmonizing all-knowledge.

Holistic Language

Holistic language is a mediator between the specificities of categorical language. demonstrate that each has valuable things to contribute to the other.    While language takes a broader view of the issue of communication, here we will analyze communication more specifically exploring the particular methods of self-expression and conflicts based on miscommunication.

Writing is a dominant form of communication now. Examining the written language in all of its various forms and manifestations, helps us to understand the specific ways we self- express and create meaning through text.

button_etymology

Where did that word come from? and why is it here? and what does it mean?  Etymology answers all of these questions, and more. The history of a word can unlock hidden meanings and renew associations between ideas and concepts that have been lost over time.
