|Gärdenfors I 72
Thinking without language/Tomasello/Gärdenfors: thesis: Thinking is more original than language: For example, to assume that language is a cause of human thinking is like the thesis that money is the cause of economics. (Tomasello 1999, p. 94).
Gärdenfors: But even before the money came up, people were trading.
The language was also later added to communication and made it more efficient, just as money made trade more efficient._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
