Colloquial language is a part of the human organism and is not less complicated than it.
From it it is humanly impossible to gather immediately the logical of language.
Language disguises the thought; so that from the external form of the clothes one cannot infer the form of the thought they clothe, because the external form of the clothes is constructed with quite another object than to let the form of the body be recog nized.
The silent adjustments to understand colloquial language are enormously complicated.
(They are of the same kind as the question whether the Good is more or less identical than the Beautiful.)
And so it is not to be wondered at that the deepest problems are really no problems.
