This has two enormously important consequences. Carruthers’ thesis is thus a very significant one. What impresses most, though, is not the significance of the thesis but its defence. Few readers will fail to learn something from it, and none will be disappointed.

The book is fairly heavyweight in terms of its academic credibility, and contains much vivid discussion of some the ideas aruond in philosophical cognition around today (eg Fodor, Searle, Dennett). However, it is not a difficult read. If you are intestested in what makes us human, then this book is for you.

Peter Carruthers has steered a path in between these two extremes. Cambridge University Press. In his 2006 book, this position is broadened and deepened. Following Antonio Damasio, he argues that mental rehearsals of action issue in imagery that plays a profound role in human practical reasoning, with inner speech now being seen as a subset of action rehearsal.

Do we think in natural language? Or is language only for communication? Much recent work in philosophy and cognitive science assumes the latter. In contrast, Peter Carruthers argues that much of human conscious thinking is conducted in the medium of natural language sentences. However, this does not commit him to any sort of Whorfian linguistic relativism, and the view is developed within a framework that is broadly nativist and modularist. His study will be essential reading for all those interested in the nature and significance of natural language, whether they come from philosophy, psychology or linguistics.
