Language, thought and reality form an inseparable triad. Each one is defined by the others; you can’t understand any one of them until you have understood the other two. But in order to speak about this triad, I must noneless begin somewhere. I will begin with thought, mainly because this is the topic with which most of my previous writings have been concerned. In this chapter I will review the model of mind presented in my earlier works, embellishing where necessary and placing an emphasis on those aspects that are most relevant to the task ahead.
