Suhr I 161
Language/Antiquity: The language reflects the structure of things. Antiquity sees the forms of discourse as the forms of things themselves.
I 162
Language/Dewey: Dewey gives a naturalistic interpretation of language and its origin. Gestures and calls are not primarily expressive(!), they are kinds of organic behavior. The baby's cry is organic overflow that happens without any intention but has signaling consequences.
