Linguistics[ edit ] The Prussian philologist Wilhelm von Humboldt — originated the idea that language and worldview are inextricable.
Humboldt saw language as part of the creative adventure of mankind. Culture, language and linguistic communities developed simultaneously and could not do so without one another. In stark contrast to linguistic determinismwhich invites us to consider language as a constraint, a framework or a prison house, Humboldt maintained that speech is inherently and implicitly creative.
Human beings take their place in speech and continue to modify language and thought by their creative exchanges. Edward Sapir also gives an account of the relationship between thinking and speaking in English. As linguistic categorization emerges as a representation of worldview and causality, it further modifies social perception and thereby leads to a continual interaction between language and perception.

Weltanschauung and cognitive philosophy[ edit ] One of the most important concepts in cognitive philosophy and cognitive sciences is the German concept of Weltanschauung. The term Weltanschauung is often wrongly attributed to Wilhelm von Humboldt, the founder of German ethnolinguistics.

A worldview can be expressed as the "fundamental cognitive, affective, and evaluative presuppositions a group of people make about the nature of things, and which they use to order their lives.
If the Sapir—Whorf hypothesis is correct, the worldview map of the world would be similar to the linguistic map of the world. However, it would also almost coincide with a map of the world drawn on the basis of music across people.
