Language Facilitating Innovative Thought

Language differentiates us from other animals. The creation of technology requires abstract thought, which in turn arises from a linguistic system of symbols. Language made it possible for us to develop socially and to gather and maintain collectives, which opened up a new world of interwoven relationships between individuals. Social life developed entirely new and rich nuances as communication became more advanced. Language offered the possibility of innovative thought, with all its countless possibilities of expression, and stimulated creativity and intelligence.
