WORDS FAILED. EVA HE, BA SCULPTURE, UAL.
Words, here I mean the fundamental element of language, of which the purpose is to communicate. Of course, words are successful in constructing a society, such as being used in official documents or transcripts. Words are also efficient for individuals to learn the functionality and the moral norms of the world. Words reflects norms, norms that are supposed to provide a common sense that is from a total objective point of view. Words are supposed to be accurate, they are pins on concepts. They provide efficiency in communication.
Then, Why failure? Words failed by distorting and diminishing the information we, as individual consciousnesses, take in. Words created an illusion of how the outside world is constructed: 1. Nouns give the units of things. Those with no names do not exist. Being used in social/ethical life, words impose ideology. If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no word for what you are or what you are doing, then your identity is effaced and what you are doing is meaningless.
