 About the Book 

This book questions some well-known labels and names whose places in Western usgae are generally taken for granted. Probing our current myopia through his humerous and provocative reflections, the author stresses his concern for the decline of words into mere social noises, Like gestalt drawings in which light areas and dark areas alternate as foreground and background language, the author shows, is embedded in culture just as culture is embedded in language.
