Daniel Tammet on Perception, Language, and Meaning

Daniel Tammet‘s TED talk A Different Way of Knowing is a fascinating look at how humans perceive language and meaning.

Perceptions are at the heart of how we acquire knowledge. Esthetic judgements rather than abstract reasoning guide and shape the process by which we all come to know what we know.

Highly recommended: Daniel’s book, Born on a Blue Day.
