Wittgenstein argued that our entire conceptual framework, the very way we think, is defined by the form of life to which we belong. Words, and their content, take meaning from that. Many forms of life may have 'family resemblances' (points of similarity) but can often result in 'language games', or, conflicts in understanding.
In his Philosophical Investigations, #Wittgenstein wrote: "If a lion could speak, we could not understand him" The point, although notoriously opaque, argues that even if a lion were to speak our language, using the same #grammar even, the lion's Form of Life is such that their conceptual scheme is so radically different from our own that we could engage with it. #linguistics #philosophy #formoflife #language
