How the Languages We Speak Shape the Way We Think

This program is sold out

Lera Boroditsky, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Stanford University

Do people who speak different languages think differently? Does learning new languages change how you think? Are some thoughts unthinkable without language? Boroditsky will review data from experiments around the world that reveal the powerful and often surprising ways that the languages we speak shape the ways we think.
