Religion, Language and the Functional Necessity of Philosophy

  • PB Badey


Language is indeed the very fabric of any culture, with it culture is transmitted thoughts are conceptualized and information disseminated. It is hardly  conceivable to imagine a learning process without effective communication. For instance how would a mother transmit her knowledge to her children, what variety of thought are possible without language. How can there be continuity of culture. Religion is an integral part of culture, so is philosophy. The paper x-rays the importance of language to religion and philosophy and argues that there exist an inevitable link between religion philosophy and language. It concludes that philosophy is necessary in any society if that society must replicate itself.
