Thinking/Black: not to be covered with "various linguistic clothes" - if a thought is supposed to be "too profound for words", we have to ignore it - Vs"Clothing Model": would lead to regarding all speaking as the encoding process and hearing as decoding.
Wrong: "Think before you speak" - Vs Cl.I.Lewis: meaning very well comes into existence through communication (otherwise Clothing Model) - however Black Thesis: thinking without language is possible - E.g. imagining chess positions.
Speech current does not need to be accompanied by a parallel stream of mental events - the spoken language needs no mental correlate to be meaningful.
Hardly possible to distinguish between thoughts and linguistic representation.
But: Language/Tractatus/Wittgenstein: 4.002 language disguises the thought - in a way that one cannot infer the shape of the clad thought from the outer shape of the dress._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
