Abstract

&#8220;It is by natural signs chiefly that we give force and energy to language; and the less language has of them, it is the less expressive and persuasive. [&#8230;] Artificial signs signify, but they do not express; they speak to the understanding, as algebraical characters may do, but the passions, the affections, and the will, hear them not: these continue dormant and inactive, till we speak to them in the language of nature, to which they are all attention and obedience.&#8221; Thomas Reid (1764). <i>An Inquiry into the Human Mind on the Principles of Common Sense.</i>
