The Unfolding of Language

Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Unfolding of Language (Taschenbuch)
We all talk and when you meet someone who speaks your language, but in a different dialect, you understand that there must be machinery in play. Because language is solely within us, everything that happens to (our) language must be shared between us. Or, in other words, when you learn about how languages change, you learn about yourself. The book is for laymen.

Deutscher argues well, with lots of examples, for the mechanisms that are in play. And he shows how a language can change, he gives believable paths words and constructs can have moved.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interesting in what it is to be human.

Rezension bezieht sich auf: How To Think More About Sex (Taschenbuch)
As in other fields of interest, the first take on the problem is to establish words and concepts that enables us to separate the interesting parts from the boring. The title "How to think more about sex" might give the idea that we need to spend more time thinking about sex. That is hardly needed. Rather, the book is about new ways to think about sex. You could say that de Botton writes like Shakespeare: Demonstrates what it is to be human, without trying to tell you what to do about it.

A modern book about sex can not refrain from discussing adultery. Also here, de Botton explains why it is so tempting while so revolting if your find that your partner has done so.

I highly recommend this little book. You will not learn anything about sex but, as with Shakespeare, you will learn a lot about yourself. Can you ask for more?

Shakespeare wrote about everything we humans do, and you can quote him on that. But to dig out the quote from the plays takes quite some effort. In this volume, you find them all In Verbatim. Just as needed.
