Surely there are differences, but it's hard to directly extract differences in thought from differences in language. Too much Whorf-Sapir. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected. Ben: Too much Whorf-Sapir.

It must be read not only by those who are concerned with the theological facets of the problem "In its patient, lucid philological approach to crucial issues, in its breathtakingly compact treatment of significant voices from Heraclitus to Job to Bergson, and in the studied independence of its own lines of development and conclusions, Boman's book is a modest masterpiece.
It must be read not only by those who are concerned with the theological facets of the problem but by anyone who claims any interest in the problem of thinking in Western culture.

Aug 05, Michael Norwitz rated it it was ok. More oriented towards linguistic analysis than pure philosophy, I found it very rough going. It's possible it reads better in the original German.
Jan 21, Jared rated it really liked it Shelves: spirituality , read-ages-ago. Another half-completed book. I look forward to coming back to it someday. It remains an intellectually fascinating read. I find it's insights popping up from time to time in the coolest places. Read this for a wonderful taste of how differently we can experience the world. It's a great link to what we would today call embodied cognition. I think it could easily be linked to modern work being done by Lakoff. Where is the time Another half-completed book.
Where is the time to finish reading all the cool stuff I have! View 1 comment. May 25, Robert Palmer rated it liked it Shelves: christian-history , christian-theology.
This book has some very good insights into the linguistic differences between ancient Hebrew and classical Greek and how those linguistic differences both reflected and shaped Hebrew and Greek culture. However, the writing style is quite dry and, at times, tedious, but this is likely a product of translation from the original German. Nevertheless, I recommend this book to serious students of the Bible.
Jul 21, Thomas Kinsfather rated it it was ok. I admit, I'm a novice in the fields of Eastern and Western thought. This book was out of my league. Very technical comments on the subtile nuances between Semitic and western languages. It was pretty heavy. Jan 05, Haley Odom rated it liked it. Technical, but very thought provoking.
