No conceptual thought without language

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 25 (6):687-687 (2002)
Abstract
Carruthers labels as “too strong” the thesis that language is necessary for all conceptual thought. Languageless creatures certainly do think, but when we get clear about what is meant by “conceptual thought,” it appears doubtful that conceptual thought is possible without language.
