The prevailing conception of language is often called "the received view." Though ubiquitous, Louis S. Berger demonstrates its flaws and the difficulties it raises for other disciplines, such as philosophy and physics. In Language and the Ineffable, Berger develops an unconventional model of human development: ontogenesis. A radical and generative feature of the model is the premise that the neonate's world is holistic, boundary-less, unimaginable, and impossible to describe; in other words, ineffable. This study unsettles the foundations of sacrosanct beliefs about language and a host of other disciplines in the process.
Louis S. Berger is a psychologist with a background in music and physics, and the author ofAverting Global Extinction: Our Irrational Society as Therapy Patient. He lives in Forsyth, Georgia.
