The Language Animal by Charles Taylor

This book's full title is The Language Animal: The full shape of the human linguistic capacity. I found this book interesting in places, but a little tough to plough through in some areas. I do not think that I learned very much by reading this book, but maybe I did not always understand what he was trying to say.

Jonathan Ree wrote an interesting review of this book at The Guardian. Jane O'Grady also does an excellent review the Times Higher Education site. Charisma Lee gives a good review at London School of Economics and Political Science.

There is a lecture on Democracy, Diversity and Religon by Professor Charles Taylor at the London School of Economics and Political Science site.

An index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. I have three blogs. The first talks only about specific stocks and is called Investment Talk . The second one contains information on mostly investing and is called Investing Economics Mostly. My last blog is for my book reviews and it is called Non-Fiction Mostly. Follow me on Twitter.
