"This is as much a history of the study of language and its origins as it is a" tour de force" pursuit using scholarly detection and cultural interpretation, thus providing a series of original perspectives on two thousand years of European history." " The Medieval Review"Vom Verlag:
The idea that there once existed a language which perfectly and unambiguously expressed the essence of all possible things and concepts has occupied the minds of philosophers, theologians, mystics, and others for at least two millennia. This book offers an investigation into the history of that idea and of its profound influence on European thought, culture, and history.
