Summary "In this program, Dr. Jonathan Miller addresses the subject of group talk, offering his observations on topics including the concept of 'speech acts' à la Wittgenstein, the implicit mechanics of verbal give-and-take, and the belief that social context, far from being a mere adjunct to linguistic communication, is actually the root cause of it. The implications of the apparent connection between right hemisphere brain damage and an impaired sense of linguisatic nuance are examined as well"--Videocassette container.
