The world is made of words and if you know the words the world is made of then you can make of it whatever you wish. – Terrence Buchanan
Silva relates how we come to understand and model reality based off symbolic language such that everything is a construct of meaning. The words we use not only make up this world but can also transform it. Silva examines the power of language not only in written form or rhetoric but also in the evolution of the landscape of our reality, from skyscrapers to jets.
