Describes the extraordinary powers than have been attributed to language everywhere, and then its failure to express important aspects in the major philosophical systems of Indian, China, Japan, and the west. Argues that just as there is something of our ordinary awkwardness with words in the linguistic struggles of philosophers, so also there is something transcendent in how words function in daily life.
