"Guy Deutscher is that rare beast, an academic who talks good sense about linguistics... he argues in a playful and provocative way, that our mother tongue does indeed affect how we think and, just as important, how we perceive the world." Observer*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.

Críticas:

"Jaw-droppingly wonderful ... A marvellous and surprising book which left me breathless and dizzy with delight. The ironic, playful tone at the beginning gradates into something serious that is never pompous, intellectually and historically complex and yet always pellucidly laid out. Plus I learned the word plaidoyer which I shall do my utmost to use every day" (Stephen Fry)

"Fabulously interesting ... a remarkably rich, provocative and intelligent work of pop science" (Sunday Times)

"Brilliant [and] beautifully written" (Financial Times)

"So robustly researched and wonderfully told that it is hard to put down" (New Scientist)

"A delight to read" (Spectator)

Contraportada:

Fascinating' Alex Bellos, Guardian

'Fabulously interesting' Sam Leith, Sunday Times

'So robustly researched and wonderfully told that it is hard to put down' New Scientist

It's a question that has baffled, enraged and fascinated in equal measure
for over a century: does the language you speak affect the way you think? Contrary to the fashionable consensus of today, acclaimed author Guy Deutscher believes that the answer is a resounding yes.On an odyssey that takes us from Homer to Darwin, from scientists to savages, and from how to name the rainbow to why Russian water - a 'she' - become a 'he' once you have dipped a tea bag into her, Through the Language Glass explores some of the most intriguing and controversial questions about language, culture and the human mind.

'Brilliant [and] beautifully written' Financial Times

'Playful and provocative...Guy Deutscher is that rare beast, an academic who talks good sense about linguistics' Observer

'A marvellous and surprising book which left me breathless and dizzy with delight' Stephen Fry
