Example text

It was made obvious by Wittgenstein that we do not learn the meaning of language in this way. Wittgenstein (1967) demonstrated how language does not acquire meaning mainly by learning what the words represent in the world and of acquiring the corresponding mental concepts to that of the adult. Rather, he argued that we learn the meaning of words by using them in all the regular tasks that a child shares with adults and other children (Williams 2002). The important reference for meaning between the adult and the child is the activity which they share and how language helps them to carry it on.

This rhythm is a fundamental habit also found in the classrooms studied (Wickman 2006). Moreover, in this rhythm positive aesthetic judgments like the one about “chlorides that are fun” concern anticipation about what would lead the activity forward to fulfillment according to purpose. Positive aesthetic judgments encompass objects, events, and actions that should be included to succeed, and they may be evaluated repeatedly along the way in how they contribute to the aim. ” (Wickman 2006, p. 89).

A meaningful proposition is only one that gets reality right (Rorty 1991). ” This view of meaning entails approaching learning as a sole individual constructing mental representations (concepts) of the world through language. This analytic approach to knowledge as justified true belief goes back to Plato. Analytic philosophy also owes Plato for its search for essences, that is, divisions of the world which are natural and represent nature as it is, beyond human interest, purpose, and practice. The tripartite division of human faculties is one such analytic split taken as out there rather than as pragmatic for purpose (Dewey 1929/1958).
