From Literature to Life/ De la Literatura a la Vida

“El lenguaje es una herramienta para pensar, imaginar y acabar siendo. Las experiencias personales, la cultura y las reglas bajo las cuales dictamos nuestro comportamiento son para el lenguaje alas; alas para volar en un mundo propio dónde transcurre nuestra existencia.

After a few weeks I noticed (thanks Google for that) that a psychologist wrote about this topic during the 80s – Bruner J.S.
