In this view, the specific actions enabled by a culture are more extensive and intricate than those provided by languaging alone, which in turn offers more possibilities for the domains that arise in language than cognition alone. I am not suggesting that cognition is not entailed in language and culture, or that culture doesn’t include language. Rather I consider what can be done in language that cognition alone doesn’t enable. — I would prefer to think of ourselves recovering a fundament of intelligence and care, to become a reflective species that is able to live appropriately in the current circumstances of complexity. This will, I think, require us to explicitly dance with ambiguity, which I think is most gracefully achieved through evoking the sense of wonder.
