MAPS OF POSSIBILITIES



Why grammatically incorrect statements are less appealing than the correct ones? Why ambiguous and uncertain speeches are less preferable than assertive and eloquent dialogue?

With no linguistic measures ,we would be able neither to fully comprehend nor represent the human world with all its totality. But Certitude seems the defining characteristic both of our language structures and scientific understandings. 19th century linguistic philosopher believed the problems dealt by philosophy are rooted in the problem of the language. Hence the proponents of such schools of thought argue that, creating correspondence between the world and  language must be the central task in our strive to solve the the metaphysical inquiries dealt by philosophy. The historical parallel of the optimist project of 19th century towards achieving linguistic utopia, is a the language of totalitarianism which is also aimed at  cultivating a language structure that dictates what is possible to think. To create a cultivated language, according to Schiller , which thinks and writes for you. Everything human; the errors, the mistakes and the uncertainty should be eradicated, In order to render every human into the extension of  its own language. Through a clear language and a certainty of vision, totalitarianism justifies itself; Rational Individuals will be mobilized to be feeling crowds. Whenever an idea believes in itself, When ideology is too certain, It forces the whole world to resemble its own image. Every ideology should have a systematic self doubt as integral part of itself.  Map of possibility is intended just to do this by a symbolic attempt of putting the medium in flux and piecemeal alterations in a manner that alters the subjects that   the medium corresponds  with.
