Abstract

F.L.Jackson brings together the flight in contemporary philosophy from conceptual thought to language as more primordial and the opposite movement in Plato from the ambiguity of language to the clarity and stability of thought. His article shows Cratylus as undermining the assumption that language is the 'house of being' and not rather itself housed in being.
